gst-plugin-scanner hangs with 100% CPU

After some of late upgrade of multimedia/gstreamer1 and associates I've noticed that almost always several /usr/local/libexec/gstreamer-1.0/gst-plugin-scanner processes hang eating almost 100% of a CPU thread each. I suppose, the process launches several times and stays forever. (Now I have three such processes with IDs 8788, 14184 and 80010).
Is it a bug? Or misupgrade?

You're not alone in this one, I've faced the same issue after latest pkg upgrade and I'm yet to find a solution...
Meanwhile I just kill the process when needed

Yes, but I can't say when to check hanging processes to come and kill them.
Also I have not found relevant bug on the bugs.freebsd.org database.
