When I try to start up Banshee it will show a "Banshee Encountered a Fatal Error" box and not start up.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Banshee-1
2. Open Banshee-1
A working Banshee player with all its glory

I have seen this one as well, even with git master. I think it is an upstream bug but I am not sure.
Normally for me it happens the first time I launch banshee in a user session, then afterwards it's fine.
I've pushed this to upstream as 583107
Please follow up on:
I managed to fix the problem by deleting the ~/.config/banshee-1/addin-db-001 folder and all it contained. I believe some files have been corrupted somehow. I wish that Banshee could see that problem and fix it itself.
