Bug#453904: rhythmbox: Noise when playing music files

Package: rhythmbox
Version: 0.10.1-1+b1
Severity: important

When playing mp3 files with Rhythmbox, I'm getting some noise, I think it's 
mostly low-frequency sounds.  The noise is not there When playing the same 
files with xmms, xmms2, totem or banshee.  (I tested with a couple more that
I can't remember the name of, but the story is the same; no noise.)

lspci says this about my sound hardware:

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)

I'm not sure what other information could be useful, or what I could do to 
find the problem.
