Rythmbox crash /lock up

Ubuntu 9.10 on a 1.4 Ghz system (old HP desktop)
I copied over 5000 mp3's to the hard drive.
Tell Rythmbox to play all in the music folder and Shuffle is on.
It runs for 20 to 30 hours and locks up starting any random mp3 or crashes.
On this same box I have Zoneminder running 4 cameras on Monitor only.
Zm never crashes. I tried the Amrock player and it dies even sooner with much the same fate.

Thanks for any ideas.

Personally, I use Banshee: I dislike Amarok, and it doesn't work brilliantly on my computer, and I had problems with Rhythmbox attempting to play two songs at once (people say this is to do with the fact I've got a dual-core processor...)

But have you tried opening rhythmbox from a terminal and seeing if you get any error messages?
