    Banshee woes - crashing on startup

    Recently Banshee has started crashing on startup, it just goes unresponsive, eventually the system popup appears asking if I want to wait or kill Banshee.

    Yesterday, following advice from a random forum post (not FedoraForum) I moved my .config/banshee-1 folder:
    Code:
    mv ~/.config/banshee-1 ~/.config/banshee-1.bak
    This allowed me to start banshee. I was able to use it happily.
    Today, back to the crashing.

    Of course I don't want to be moving that directory everytime I want to use my music manager!

    Banshee pops up a dialog with some debug/error info (below) but it doesn't seem very helpful (to me anyway!), perhaps suggesting an error string is too long to handle? Perhaps some file metadata is too long?

    When I close the dialog, Banshee dies.

    Any ideas?

    "Message length 926089216 exceeds maximum allowed 134217728 bytes"

    An unhandled exception was thrown: Message length 926089216 exceeds maximum allowed 134217728 bytes

    Re: Banshee woes - crashing on startup

    Hello DaFoot.

    Try removing the BPM plug-in. It is buggy and appears to be causing your crash.
    turned off the auto detect bpm, and unslected the detect BPM extension.

    Hope that will solve the issue for you.

    Good luck.
