Kdf,

When I'd tried removing it from the top section it disappeared
completely. Didn't even show up in the inactive menu items. I was trying
to find a config file for slimserver, but didn't find anything that
looked like I should be messing with it. I guess I'll just wait for v5.5
and see if they fixed it.

as am I, and I have browse playlists as a menu item. It it listed in
the top section, and not the inactive menu items? What if you try
removing it then adding it again?

/etc/slimserver.conf if you run straight from the RPM
~/.slimserver.conf if you run as a user

unfortunately, things dont get fixed if the people doing the fixing dont see the
error or are given the chance to find out what is causing it.

do you have a playlists directory set up? do you have proper permissions for
slimserver to access it? either of these cases might cause the server to erase
the playlists directory because it thinks there isn't one to browse.
