Has to do with Banshee's database becoming corrupted or something. Solution is to delete the database and re-import the music library.
I'm currently awaiting membership of Gnome Bugzilla, so I can re-report it with the appropriate terminal logs and version numbers.
The last time I checked, which was a year or two ago, many of the hard core maintainers were still using the tried-and-true USENET news to deal with things like this. Have you tried combing through the maze of NNTP servers to see if there's a Banshee forum out there?
