Ive just upgraded to 5.4.1 and noticed that iTunes Playlists are missing
from the Browse Playlists menu on the Slimserver web page and Squeezebox
menu.

The only playlists listed are those in the /User/Music/Playlist directory
specified in the Playlists Folder settings under Server Settings.

Im sure that previously iTunes playlists AND playlists in the Playlist
Folder were listed under Browse Playlists * however am not sure what
combination of iTunes/Slimserver this was with...

Im using Slimserver 5.4.1, iTunes 4.7.1, OSX 10.3.8 and Slimserver is set
to use iTunes.

They're not missing, it just seems that the server is taking a very long time to
rescan the library. I'm seeing this too with the most recent (last week of)
nightly builds of 5.4.1. I've gone away and left SlimServer for hours and come
back to find that it's "still scanning the library".

I notice the latest beta of SlimServer 6 fixes rescanning "running glacially
slowly". Is this the same issue? Can the bugfix be merged into 5.4.1?
