Has anyone tried to look at the database to see if/when changes are being 
applied?  Once could do this by doing logging into the database via installing
phpMyAdmin (suggested) or via logging into the database like so:

mysql -u mythtv -pmythtv mythconverg

and at the prompt

SELECT * FROM music_playlists 

If you want to do the second, you can by either going into a virtual console
(ie: control-alt-F1) or via SSH (highly suggested).  I would make playlist
exit mythmusic then check the database to see if the changes had been 
applied.  Check again when you log out and again when you have seen the 
changes show up in mythmusic.  The I would look at possibly filing a bug/suggestion
