Comment(by stuartm):

 I've been unable to reproduce the segfault with the sample file sent to
 me. Combined with the backtrace that leads me to suspect that this is a
 build issue, either with the taglib package for the distro or with

 Using -v file with current trunk should have output some information,
 which initially suggests that there may be a build issue with mythmusic
 and possibly the plugins in general. You might check that multiple
 versions are not installed in different directories.

 Other applications such as Amarok use Taglib (see
 http://ktown.kde.org/~wheeler/taglib.html for a full list). If they
 similarly segfault then it may be the taglib package, in which case I
 suggest reporting it to the distributions bug tracker. If those
 applications don't segfault, it's not a clear indication that taglib is ok
 since they will all use the API in different ways.

 There are known issues with reading files on a Samba Cifs mounted drive,
 though I would not expect it to be the cause of this problem we should try
 to rule it out.
