Are you expecting people to guess that one?

If that's the case, there should be a warning about that in the NEWS text or in
some other obvious place.  Something along the line of:

"Starting with release 0.8, Rhythmbox uses gstreamer 0.8, which requires
reconfiguring your settings for the audio sink. It might be advisable to kill
and restart gconf right after upgrading, before going and reconfiguring for
gstreamer 0.8.  The settings to upgrade are in /system/gstreamer/0.8/default.  
hint: if you installed the 0.8 versions of your favorite audio sink, you should
be able to copy /paste the old 0.6 settings as is. Suitable tools to edit these 
values include gconf-editor, gstreamer properties 2.6 and gconftool-2."

Anyhow, I restarted gconfd and, sure enough, the friggin 0.8 keys finally showed
up in gconf-editor.  *grumble*

Am I allowed to file an RC bug against the _author_ of gconfd? ;-P

PS:  note that, in complement to bug #250433, I still cannot get any sound, 
even if I separately install the gstreamer0.8-esd package and configure the
audio sink to use it.
