Re: the status of gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad

do you conclude this from the package description?

I can confirm the crashes with the package in unstable. However, please
note that gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad is entangled into many simultaneous
transitions at the moment. I guess a simple rebuild in a clean
environment could already help to fix it (fwiw, the package in testing
is build from the same source version and does not crash).

If it helps, a new upstream snapshot has just arrived in experimental
and using this, the crashes disappeared.
