Woohoo, I finally fixed a very weird bug in Goobox Debian package. I tried to find that segfault for a month, but I didn't have time to work on it with more attention. Then I tagged the bug with "help" tag and rased its severity. And Stephen Gran did a diff between the previous version, that worked and the current version (Thanks!). He found that gnomevfs sink was used to write files in new version instead of file sink like in older version. That's great for GNOME integration, but stupid me forgot to just add gstreamer0.8-gnomevfs package to dependencies and because of that, people who don't have it (say they're don't use GNOME) got a segfault. So I fixed that little (as it really is) bug, updated to new upstream version and uploaded with urgency=high to mentors.debian.net. Tommorow, my sponsor will upload it to unstable and in about two days it will enter Sarge. So we'll have a working goobox in Sarge. :)
