Since upgrading to 12.04, dragging podcast episodes doesn't move them onto my ipod.

Adding songs from the library works fine, but if I do it with a podcast nothing happens.

I'm not sure what the exact issue was, but I was able to solve it by deleting ~/.gconf/apps/rhythmbox/%gconf.xml.

After that, Rhythmbox transfer worked fine once I restarted the program.

Thanks to this article, which contained the solution.
