You are correct. The ubuntu precise changelog for the 
gstreamer0.10-plugins-base package shows this last entry:

gst-plugins-base0.10 (0.10.36-1ubuntu0.1) precise-proposed; urgency=low

   * debian/patches/git_timestamps_discard_issue.patch:
     - "don't discard timestamps when consecutive input buffers have
        the same ts", should fix playback pausing on mp3 to ogg
        transitions in rhythmbox (lp: #921071)

Perhaps this patch can be also applied to the debian source. However, 
it's unclear if this patch fixes the transition from mp3 or ogg to flac.




It would seem the best to do is to what Christoph said and revert the 
bad commit. Or wait for the gstreamer developers to fix it (as they have 
responded here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=680252)
