Package: gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio
Version: 0.10.30-1
Severity: important

Since installing version 0.10.30-2 of the package, pulseaudio would crash
periodically while using rhytmbox. I didn't test with any other application
that uses gstreamer, but what lead me to believe that this package was
responsible of the problem was that downgrading the package to it's previous
version (the one that I'm actually using) would make the crashing stop.

The error threw by pulseaudio, according to syslog:

pulseaudio[2498]: [pulseaudio] object.c: Assertion 'pa_object_refcnt(o) > 0'
failed at pulsecore/object.c:60, function pa_object_unref(). Aborting.
