Without fail, Banshee hangs and turns dark for a few seconds every single time it starts up for the first time. Using 11.10.
After the first few days of my 11.10 installation, Banshee didn't do that. (Could it be clashing with some other installed application? I have Zim Notes and Weather Indicator and System Monitor Indicator added.)
Why does this happen and how can it be fixed?
(On a related note, Banshee refuses to start up if my iPhone is already plugged in. It opens and then immediately closes. The workaround, I've found, is to unplug my iPhone and then start up Banshee, followed by plugging in my iPhone, which seems to keep Banshee from not crashing.)
