I have this bug and also have I believe a work around. The work-around
results from trying to investigate a Rhythmbox bug:

Rhythmbox Unable to Play Music from daap share that requires password

I was going to report the Banshee bug, but this bug already seems to
cover it. My details are:

Clean install of Ubuntu 10.04.

$ lsb_release -rd
Description:	Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS
Release:	10.0

Two  NAS boxes on network:

 1) NAS1 - Dlink DNS-323, firmware 1.08

 2) WD1 - Western Digitial MyBook World Edition - firmware 01.01.16 with

Both have built in daap (itunes) servers. Both of these servers and
their music files can be seen and played under Windows Vista and Windows
7 using either itunes or songbird (with the daap plugin). The NAS1 daap
server is setup so that it requires a password to access the server.
Both itunes and songbird prompt for this password. WD1 does not require
a password.

I installed the Banshee music player. Initially this could not see
either NAS1 or WD1.

After a google search I edited the file: /etc/samba/smb.conf

and adding in the [global] section after the line "server string = %h
server (Samba, Ubuntu)"

  client ntlmv2 auth = no

Now Banshee was able see and connect to both WD1 and the DNS-323 daap
server, it prompted for the password when connecting to NAS1. I was able
to play music from both WD1 and NAS1.
