Package: gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
Version: 0.10.7-1
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks unrelated software

this gstreamer0.10 lib need some brushing.

totem, epihany, icemonkey and others, sporadicaly crashes, and I
yet speculate without proofs it is a plugin related matter; too lazy to
dig a report!

but one culprit can be caught when running well used gnome stuff like the
gnome-setting-daemon or gnome-power-manager, and looking in the .xsession-errors :

(gnome-power-manager:7970): GStreamer-WARNING **: Failed to load plugin
/usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstmms.so: undefined symbol:

(gnome-power-manager:7970): GStreamer-WARNING **: Failed to load plugin
/usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstmodplug.so: undefined symbol:

ERROR: Caught a segmentation fault while loading plugin file:

Please either:
- remove it and restart.
- run with --gst-disable-segtrap and debug.
Could not initialize GStreamer: Error re-scanning registry , child

I got to say it could be a corrupted gconf setting, but where to look in
the gnome settings domain?
