The Open With Rhythmbox right click context menu option in Nautilus for mp3 files isn't working properly. On the first selection of the context menu item it starts up rhythmbox if it isn't already running or stops what is playing if it is but it doesn't start playing the selected file.

On the second try it works.

Is there anything I can do to fix this relatively minor annoyance?
