These directions will remove all playlists
Authored by: jfaughnan on Mar 11, '11 07:34:30PM

From the kb article: "If you delete the file, iTunes creates a new, empty copy when you open the application, but any playlists, song ratings, comments, or other information you created will be lost."

This needed to be mentioned in the hint. This is an awful solution for a nasty bug. We need a better answer from Apple.

If you continue reading the KB article to the end, you will see how to avoid the problem you mention. Essentially, you delete the "iTunes library" file, then recreate it by importing the "iTunes library.xml" file (which will have your playlists, ratings etc in it).
