I've analyzed the stacktrace more, and I think there is a bug in
parse_pls() in playtreeparser.c. In case there is no (valid) entry, the
for loop in line 344 is executed 0 times. This leads to leaving the
variable 'list' to '0', which in turn causes the crash. For this reason,
I'm proposing this patch:

Index: playtreeparser.c
===================================================================
--- playtreeparser.c    (revision 31930)
+++ playtreeparser.c    (working copy)
@@ -368,6 +368,7 @@
   free(entries);
 
   entry = play_tree_new();
+  if (list)
   play_tree_set_child(entry,list);
   return entry;
 }


However, I still think Adrians Patch isn't bad and in this case would
have had the exact same behavior. If perhaps other parsers have a
similar problems, Adi's patch would be more safe.

So which one of the two patches do you prefer?
