           Summary: [playbin2] unit test fails

The playbin2 unit test fails in -base with a race condition.

The reason is that the unit tests uses a custom source that provides raw video
on an always source pad. Playbin2 continues autoplugging and exposing the pads
in the state change to READY, resulting in the source to be set to PAUSED
before the sinks had a chance to got to PAUSED too. This causes a wrong-state
return, which stops everything.

We need to add more code to playbin2 to handle this (uncommon) case.

For the release I would suggest to disable the test.
