Description

Hi all, I've been experiencing this problem since some version and I'm currently using 3.2.3. (official gentoo ebuild)

The problem is that often (not everytime although) I open a stream link (shoutcast and icecast webradios) and the player freezes eventually locking the UI, the only solution is "kill -9".

Opening the same exact stream with totem or mplayer results in fine listening.

I've looked for some log enabling option in preferences but wasn't able to find one, so, please, if you need more informations than let me know.
