If avahi is not running, rhythmbox prints this to std(something) on 
startup and/or when you enble sharing in its prefs:

(rhythmbox:24998): Rhythmbox-WARNING **: Unable to start mDNS browsing

(rhythmbox:24998): Rhythmbox-WARNING **: Unable to notify network of music sharing

Otherwise it behaves fine.
