banshee loses the ability to play song when it is renamed while playing

banshee (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: banshee

banshee doesn't graciously rename files while they are being listened to. The result is losing access to the files because the library xml file does not update itself gracefully.

Steps to reproduce (works one in many times)
 - Play Song
 - Change Song Name while it plays
 - Play Next Song
 - Go back and play first song
What happens: First song is marked with an "X" (missing file) even though the file is there.
What is expected: Gracefully rename the file after it is done playing, or alternatively load a file into memory when playing it so that any changes can happen on the file, even if they end up changing the file path or file name.
