If you're using the gstreamer backend for rhythmbox and have noticed that when you try to skip to the next song there is an annoying 2 second pause, I've discovered a simple fix: Use the xine backend. All of a sudden the 2 second pause will be gone and response will be just as quick as xmms.

Here's how:
Code:
$ USE="xine -gstreamer" emerge rhythmbox -p


And enjoy a usable rhythmbox!

Sorry if this is discussed elsewhere, I did search.
