They were created on the BSD server.  I actually figured out that by 
opening the playlist with a text editor, saving it, then trying again, it 
worked.  I didn't even change the file at all.  just 'vi playlist' then 
save it and try again.  I never did figure out the difference.  I even 
diffed the new vs the old, and got no changes shown.

On a side note, ices 0.2.3 doesn't segfault on the same playlist.  It 
reports it as corrupted, but at least it doesn't crash.
