    When I first tried to play the sample file on Smasher-1.1.7, it just froze completely ang became unresponsive; I had to kill it with kill -9 <pid-of-smasher>. After some head-scratching, I found out that I had slightly misconfigured gstreamer settings, pointing to a device which wasn't available. In such situations Smasher should alert user and return control to the GUI, instead of just freezing while waiting forever for non-existent/already-in-use soundcard
