rhythmbox 0.12.4

Rhythmbox, the default audio player in Ubuntu was updated recently to version 0.12.4. Among the changes:

Interesting changes:
* New HAL-free media player detection code (using GUdev and the media-player-id collection of device info files); improved MTP device detection allowing multiple devices and devices not explicitly supported by libmtp (Jonathan Matthew)
* Audio CD improvements: allow metadata retrieval to be retried, link to the musicbrainz submission page when data is missing (Bastien Nocera, Matt N)
* Configurable action for mouse-wheel events on the status icon (volume control or next/previous track) (Gustavo Mora)
* Rearranged to link properly (should help building on Windows or with -Wl,-as-needed, probably) (Jonathan Matthew)
* Variety of crashes fixed (Jonathan Matthew)
* Occasional transfer problems with MTP devices fixed (Jonathan Matthew)

Bugs fixed:
