Debug Log from Banshee

Sorry I don't know how to describe the bug a little better since I'm not very experienced with Mono...

This is the bug report for banshee:

I have attached the debug log but please note that my OS is not development branch, I don't know where this comes from ;-)

It's a NRE inside System.Text.Encoding.GetBytes(string) from the log.
Comment 2 Andres G. Aragoneses 2012-11-20 16:02:32 UTC
Martin, do you mind installing debug packages in order to get line numbers on that stacktrace?

Please provide a test case.

Forgot to mention: a similar case was fixed about a year ago, hence the request for a test case.
