    I get the same here.

    Press Next once = works. Press Next twice or too quickly = window goes grey and Force Quit required.

    Select a track, press Pause and then press Play = windows goes grey and Force Quit required.

    This program does not like being made to Force Quit repeatedly. It now will not play at all. Or change albums. I may have to reboot to get it to start working again.

    Update: Just give a few minutes to get its breath back but once an album is playing do not change anything.

    I have been running top and rhythmbox disappears when it becomes unresponsive.

    Update 2: changing the sound level on the Rhythmbox slider also puts it into Unresponsive mode. Edit: It the slider that moves forward through the track.

    I am going to try a reboot. done that. Now playing again but I am not messing with it. Listening to Eddie Cochran.

    Added comment to bug report.

    Regards.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Working good here .. finally-! I always had problems with Rbox so I used Audacious. I was trying to emulate your bug .. but now it is working great.

    After removing the gstreamer1.0 pulseaudio plugin all gst players such as totem, Rb & banshee behave much better here.
    (noted http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2090486
    The exception would be 'slide' seeking (vs. 'click' seeking), which continues to cause an unresponsive player(s)

    You should put a proper bug description in your report, not a link to a forum thread.
