Is this in the web interface or SavePlaylist.pm?

What is in your Playlist location in the web interface? I think
this setting is right about (or below) where you set your
music directory.

I think it says "Saved" or something like that.

There is a location chosen, and I can save to it using the
SavePlaylist.pm on the Squeezebox.
