Perhaps add 'Format: <format list>' to the Device Profile > Options > Playlist options ?

Fixed in build 1384.
 - I fixed it by replacing the old Playlist option 'Use 8.3 filenames', which actually didn't really do what the name suggested, but created pretty useless utf8-like m3u format understood by MM only. The new checkbox 'Use Unicode (UTF-8 encoding) for M3U playlists' used already existing and localized string and does exactly what the title suggests, i.e. writes UTF-8 m3u playlist (in case it's necessary, i.e. there aren't 7-bit ASCII characters only).
