I'm running Banshee on a clean install of 64-bit 10.10. When I add my music collection (~110 GB) it crashes repeatedly. I eventually get it all loaded up after a few restarts. Then I delete the default playlists and make my own. Banshee is a bit buggy but I like it and I'm trying to make this work.

The problem I have is that two playlists keep reappearing after I delete them. Each time I restart Banshee, 'Favorites' and 'Recent Favorites' appear in my list of playlists. As soon as I click on them they disappear and the next playlist below is highlighted. How do I permanently remove them, so they don't come back?

This is a bug in Banshee. In general, AskUbuntu isn't the right place to discuss bugs. It's better to report bugs to the appropriate bug tracker, however in this case, the bug has already been reported: Bug 648634.

Thanks Michael. As a workaround, I found that I could modify the existing smart playlists, since they couldn't be permanently deleted. I had been deleting them on install, and making my own. It works well enough that I just do it that way now. – Tom Brossman Jun 13 '11 at 10:07
Ahh, that's a good workaround. Glad you found something that works! :) – Michael Martin-Smucker Jun 13 '11 at 12:15
