An error seems to occur scanning one of your files.
The traceback does not reveal which element nor why since the python
bindings crashes before you can see the error.

I believe that you can see exactly what's happening by using the GST_LOG
environment variable, but I'm confident enough with its interface to give
you exact details on how to do that.
