The problem was that GST_TYPE_PLUGIN isn't of type G_TYPE_POINTER but of
G_TYPE_BOXED (I would imagine this is the problem). Something somewhere
(forget where) was trying to get the value as g_value_get_pointer, which
failed, and there was a crash.
Company told me to make that change, it fixed the problem, and then I
was told to commit it. If you want to make the change and then find out
where gst-register-0.7 is crashing and fix that, so ahead :)
