  Banshee crashes immediately due to Podcasting extension

Status in Ubuntu MATE:
Status in banshee package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Upon installing Banshee 2.6.2 from the main repositories on Ubuntu
  MATE 14.04, the music player immediately crashes upon start-up.

  After analysing the crash and researching for a solution, it appears
  to be a problem when loading the Podcasting extension.

  This can be fixed with one of two ways:
  a. Remove the file /usr/lib/banshee/Extensions/Banshee.Podcasting.dll
  b. Create the directory 'Podcasts' in the user's home directory.

  I have attached the terminal output, which appears to have a problem
  with GLib.
