When I use banshee I usually shuffle my library of music ~3000 songs mostly in flac. Sometimes it reaches a song and stops playing, it has the song lined up but never plays. I have to manually double click on the song to make it play and everything continues. It won't work if I use the play/pause keyboard shortcut either so it's a bit annoying.

I've run it in debug mode and there are not warnings and errors. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Do you have gapless playback enabled? Try disabling it, that worked for me.
