Listen media player&python error on Debian Etch

Well i'll cut to the chase:
"Listen" is like AmaroK, but for GTK.
Every time im trying to add a directory to the music library,
a new window that shows me the the file loading progress from that directory opens up, but stucks with no progress,and cant be closed.
here's the output from the moment i run this app,till the moment its
getting stuck:

Bauer@OptimusPrime:~$ listen
ERROR (0x827e658 - 0:00:04.094637000)         GST_PIPELINE( 8677) ./grammar.y(578):_gst_parse__yyparse: no element "xvima gesink"

  File "/usr/lib/listen/", line 176, in fill
    else: all = {"<###songs###>":set(),"<###feed_uri###>":None}
NameError: global name 'set' is not defined

    value =value.decode("utf-8", "ignore")
AttributeError: 'unicode' object has no attribute 'decode'
note: "NB FILE TO LOAD 13"
13 is the number of mp3s in /mnt/music/Electronic .

I'm not a big expert,but i think it is a Python problem.
And since i dont know programming in python, i hope you
guys could give some hints to solve this problem.

Here's a link to the project's main page:
