Exaile crashes with "glib.GError: Couldn't recognise the image file format for file"


I'm after a music player for my new Arch install, and Exaile sounded good. But when I run it from the console, it crashes with the following:
Code:
$ exaile
INFO    : Loading Exaile 0.3.0.1...
INFO    : Loading settings...
INFO    : Setting up deferred idle manager function...
INFO    : Loading plugins...
INFO    : Loading collection...

    main()

    exaile = main.Exaile()
  File "/usr/lib/exaile/xl/main.py", line 90, in __init__
    self.__init()
  File "/usr/lib/exaile/xl/main.py", line 207, in __init
    self.gui = xlgui.Main(self)
  File "/usr/lib/exaile/xlgui/__init__.py", line 88, in __init__
    xdg.get_data_path('images'))
  File "/usr/lib/exaile/xlgui/icons.py", line 55, in add_icon_name_from_directory

  File "/usr/lib/exaile/xlgui/icons.py", line 73, in add_icon_name_from_file
    pixbuf = gtk.gdk.pixbuf_new_from_file(filename)
glib.GError: Couldn't recognise the image file format for file '/usr/share/exaile/data/images/svg/exaile.svg'
How do I fix this?

From Googling .. glib.GError: ..

.. it seems that a missing 'librsvg' will prevent
python applications from recognizing " svg files ".

Example ..

Installing librsvg fixed the problem - but pacman thought it was already installed! Odd...
