The delete config idea got banshee to stop crashing after playing a song.
I had the same problem -- I am playing music files from an external HDD and after this disk lost its mount point Banshee began crashing when I tried to delete the spurious file names from the library. Thank you!
I tried this fix. It works once, but crashes when attempting to start Banshee next time. ??
(The problem is only with Banshee 1.7.6, I can use 1.6 from the repositories with no problem.)

I wanted to offer this up for a fix as it is documented.
banshee crash on start
As indicated in the upstream bug, you can work around the issue by creating a Podcasts folder in your home folder (mkdir ~/Podcasts).
Banshee should then start without crashing.
