Why does Banshee pop up and freeze on Ubuntu 11.10?

I recently upgraded my Ubuntu 11.04 install to 11.10, and to my suprise, whenever I click on the trash icon Banshee pops up and after awhile freezes. Can I revert back to 11.04, or is there a way to fix this problem? I do like the feel of 11.10.

    Well, 11.10 has something wrong with trash and media players, just read about vlc media player disturbing the trash.
    either you can be patient and find some solution
    or revert to 11.10.

    option 1:
    Reinstall 11.04

    http://releases.ubuntu.com/natty

    Back up everything you dont want to lose.

    option 2 :

    1. edit /etc/apt/source.list

    (point every thing to natty)

    2. man apt_preferences

    3. create /etc/apt/preferences

    (add natty with priority 1001)

    4. sudo apt-get update

    5. sudo apt-get upgrade/dist-upgrade/install

    Re-installing is ok, but you can wait for a solution brfore returning to 11.04.
