Please could you run in a terminal "banshee --debug" and attach all the output information to your report (following same steps to reproduce this issue), Thanks.

Changed in banshee (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Medium
status: New → Incomplete

Could you attach a sample file that has such encoding problems, please?

Kind regards,
Loong Jin

I'm closing this as invalid, as the files were tagged wrongly, as described in the comment in the upstream bug as shown here:
