First, ignore that last paragraph above. I don't know what happened but
the problem went away when I resinstalled everything. However, the
rhythmbox problem did not go away. It turns out it was a problem I ran
into before but, due to Synaptic upgrades, the error messages were
presented in a different format. I finally realize that this was an
earlier problem, solved using a suggestion from a list member. I'm
repeating the solution here to make it easy to find if you followed this
thread rather than the earlier one.

I had this issue. You need to fire up the gnome configuration editor (on
Menu under System Tools), select apps and then rhythmbox and add a key
in the "state" folder with values of Key name: play_order and State:
linear. Or add linear if the key exists but with no value.
