I've been having an ongoing problem while ripping a CD to library in Rhythmbox. On the same CD it rips just fine until it reaches 85% and then "pauses" i.e it freezes and locks up. Then the only way to do anything is to manually eject the CD. It's at 85% every time. If I try another CD, same problem, but the freeze point is at a different point (usually 75-85%) due to the size difference.

Come to think of it I had a similar sort of problem importing photos into Fspot. It would freeze up after a while. I only tried it a couple of times and havent had time to pursue that one.

I suspect these maybe related but right now I'd like to resolve the CD ripping problem. I'm wondering if its a memory issue although I should have plenty. Any ideas?
