SlimServer keeps loosing my Playlist for my Squeeze Box. Ever time I reboot or restart SlimServer the Playlist for Squeeze Box is empty and I have to reload the playlist and start it over. Have the setting under Server Setting: Behavior: Maintain Client Playlists: Remember Playlist

It would always come up and start at the same song it was playing after reboot before I had to reinstall from a HD crash. I'm still in the process of reripping my CDs so it has to rescan my music on ever reload. Would this stop the playlist from reloading (even if I'm not changing the songs in it)?

You probably have an old .m3u file in there. Two things: have you set
the Playlists Folder in Server Settings? This is a good thing to do so
that you don't get mysterious playlist files all over the place. And if
you search for *.m3u, are any named __mac-address.m3u and dated about
the time of your crash? Delete them.
