Unfortunately, this _is_ the version from testing.  Tried the potato
version already, with the --force-downgrade option, and it fails in
the same way.  It leads me to believe that it's an issue with how xmms
interacts with gtk, apparently across versions.  Perhaps the gtk stuff
changed recently, and xmms needs to be rewritten to act accordingly?
Don't know, unfortunately, as I haven't had enough experience (read
almost none) coding, and can't track it down on my own.
