I'm the submitter of the bug mentioned above: as I reported,
installing hal solved the issue.

I think the problem has two points:

1) rhythmbox *should* at least recommends hal, because this (and not
   gnome-volume-manager) is what lets rhythmbox plays AudioCD.
   Moreover, the g-v-m recommendation has been added in version
   0.9.6-2 for iPod-autodetection support, after I reported the bug
   (discovered in version 0.9.5-2).  Obviously, I didn't and still
   don't have g-v-m installed.

2) no note about playing AudioCD is present in the README.Debian, thus
   the user cannot discover the problem source on a normal GNOME
   session, where I guess rhythmbox isn't started with terminal output
   (I didn't check, sorry).

Thx, bye,
