Bug#407612: beep-media-player goes to background instead of stopping when it should close

Package: beep-media-player
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks unrelated software


I just realised that beep-media-player doesn't close itself when it
should, instead it just backgrounds itself. I found out this when (after
a few starts and stops of the player) applications started crashing on
me (being killed by the kernel due to lack of resources).

This behaviour can be reliably reproduced on my system with this

1) make sure there is no running instance of the player:
eddy@bounty ~ $ killall beep-media-player
beep-media-player: no process killed
2) start the player:
eddy@bounty ~ $ beep-media-player
3) start playing a song and close the player while is playing (through
the graphical interface) - this will result in music still being played
- BUG!
4) CTRL+Z in the console

[1]+  Stopped                 beep-media-player
eddy@bounty ~ $ ps ax | grep beep
11214 pts/3    TLl    0:00 beep-media-player
11235 pts/3    S+     0:00 grep beep
eddy@bounty ~ $ fg

Because it causes unexpected behaviour (doesn't die when it should
terminate) and thus occupies memory making unrelated software not start
I think this is bug should be critical.

Even if the bug is downgraded (is at least important), Etch should not
ship the software in such a broken state.
