> Jasper, how did you reproduce this? Is it random?
It's "random", but it happens a lot of the time for me.
1. $ totem ~/thing.mp3
2. Sometimes the file won't play (no visualizer, "00:00 / 00:00")
3. Open a file from the Recent Files list.
You sometimes get an assert on something like "g_type_instance", you sometimes
get a segfault. It's just trying to access memory it thinks it has but doesn't.
Additionally, it might be related to threading sync issues: I forget it now,
but while debugging this with gdb I found a breakpoint I could set that would
make the issue go away (I tested six or seven times with that breakpoint, and
it never failed once)
