I have a fresh install of openSUSE 12.3 and use the amarok package of the
standard openSUSE repository

$ rpm -qi amarok

Vendor : openSUSE
Summary : Media Player for KDE
Description :
Amarok is a media player for all kinds of media. This includes MP3, Ogg
Vorbis, audio CDs, podcasts and streams. Play lists can be stored in
.m3u or .pls files.
Distribution: openSUSE 12.3

Each time I start amarok (from the launcher) it only shows the splash screen
and then crashes. I usually have to give it one two three more tries until the
application comes up. Once it's running, I very rareley get more crashes.

The bug reporting assistant tells me that the collected trace is useless. I
have installed the amarok-debuginfo package and several other multimedia
related debug packages. But the lines at the bottom just show:

Thread 1 (Thread 0x7f304d037780 (LWP 3692)):
[KCrash Handler]
#6 0x00007f2f404f8030 in ?? ()
#7 0x00007f2fb9070da0 in ?? ()
#8 0x0000000000000000 in ?? ()

The symbols of all other threads can be resolved (if they are helpful, I can
provide them later).

If I start amarok fromm a console, the same crash happens. The dump to STDOUT
is attached.

The only other info that I can think of is that my home partition is reused
from several older installations/machines. Last was an openSUSE 12.1 on the
same machine.

If any other info is needed, I'll be glad to provide it.

Thanks in advance,

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start amarok

Actual Results:
A crash with "segmentation fault"

Expected Results:
It should show the main window of amarok

Not sure about the severity. As a crash it might be "critical", but then, after
a handful of tries it works at some point. So I'll leave it at "major" because
it's very annoying.
