Yes, I found out about that, too. But it's quite inconvenient to always have manually get rid of them.

I was unaware the playlists get moved, though this explains a side effect I'm seeing. My script wipes out a /sdcard/audio directory and reloads music and timestamp-named playlists, but the old .m3u files continue to display in the playlist screen. I have to delete them as described above. If they are getting moved this explains why the wipe doesn't clear them.
It does :-)

I don't wipe, but use lftp's reverse mirror to just copy what's changed.

If I can't find how to get rid of the playlists, I'll use them server side to relabel ID3 tags and that way tie my stuff together. Make the album tag the playlist name, or something along these lines.

Does the auto-genned "recently added" faux playlist do anything for you?
I don't have that one.

Looking forward to other podcast-related posts.
Ah, not much, really. Using podcatcher to download them, then creating a playlist of the last 50 of them with find, sort and head. My music lives in a directory structure suitable for Squeeze Server, I just want a comfortable way to sync a tiny subset of it to the phone.
