Banshee acting up??

Hi guys

Banshee music player v0.10.12 has been acting up lately on FC6. All the title tags are jumbled up and none of the metadata entries are saving to the file. It always hangs when i quit it upon which i xkill it.

Honestly i always thought Banshee was a stupid player, it don't even know how to randomly play a playlist, just keeps on repeating the same set of 5 songs in a 10 song playlist. It proved me right now, coz it always sucked with all flavors of distros.

The same is fine in other players like amarok,xmms etc. Will an update resolve this issue?

Any suggestions
