Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: banshee

I had a single item in the Filesystem Queue from months ago.  I don't
know how it got there, but I had managed to forget about it since
whenever I'd open banshee everything else worked as normal.  I had no
idea what the filesystem queue was at this point either, or how it was
any different from the play queue.

Today I got curious so I clicked it and found an old video file.  I
right clicked to remove it and was given a confirmation dialog: "Do you
really wish to remove this file from the queue?"

Instinctively I clicked cancel, as since I had literally just said
remove by right clicking I suspected this dialog would only come up if
this was a dangerous operation (ie, deleting my file).  But it's not.

So, three suggestions:
1) Consider using something more obvious than "filesystem queue" to describe the functionality.  I know what a filesystem is, but I have no idea what this queue is about.
2) Get rid of the confirmation dialog when removing an item from the queue
3) Empty the queue on quitting banshee.
