Audacious crashes when adding a large amount of songs on Ubuntu


I use Audacious to play my music...
But every time I want to add my music it crashes... even when I do it in batches.
Is there somewhere I can find logging to see what the problem is?

Run it from the command line, and tell us what the output says.

The last thing it tells me, before it crashes is 'Segmentation fault'.

This is the full output (I filtered out some of the duplicate warnings);
Code:

The seg fault is because it allocated the memory for the songs, but they weren't there. So no worries.
Looks to me like it doesn't know where your music is. Are you sure all of your music is in the directory that its looking for?

I drag and dropped the music-directories to audacious... It only complains about a few songs, they probably have some weird characters or something.
I'll fix the names, hope that solves my problem.

*edit*
It's pretty weird...
A folder it can't find = /home/eigenaar/Muziek/Testament/The Gathering/
which doesn't exist, because it should be
/home/eigenaar/Muziek/Testament/1999 - The Gathering/

The directory name is probably something I changed, but I don't understand from where it get's the old name.

It's trying to reload your library from the past. If it can't find the files because you changed the directory names, it will throw warnings. You can either,
A: Erase the files from the Audacious library and re-import your music
B: Rename all the directories to exactly the way it was before.

There was a playlist-file hidden in one of the directories, with old references...

Thanks for the help!
