According to the first forum post, it seems that changing the 'View as:' setting for all of the playlists to 'Entire Library' fixes the problem. This implies 2 issues:
1) on Upgrade from MM3 to MM4, some playlists are set to 'View as:' Music, and others to 'View as:' Entire library (confirmed by upgrading from MM3 to MM4). Not sure why this is the case.
2) for some reason, in some cases, when the user switches from a node1 to a playlist with a 'View as' setting that is the same as the node1, the column settings of the playlist override those of the node1. Note however, that although I was able to replicate this in bigbwb's DB, I was unable to do so on my own DB that had been upgraded from MM3 to MM4.

Re 1) It is about issue 0008632 where only these two playlists:
Favorites - 1 Audio CD Worth (74 minutes)
Favorites - 1 MP3 CD Worth (650 MB)
are classified as 'Music' otherwise we classify them as 'Entire Library'

Re 2) The user's DB is in a strange state, it looks like DB update 4,0,48 missed for him, we should try to obtain his MM.DB from version 3 and try to update it to version 4 to see if it is reproducable.

1) It probably makes sense for all autoplaylists except:
'Last50 played' and 'Recently added' to be categorized as music.

Fixed in build 1459.

All playlists except for the 'Last 50 played' and 'Recently added' are set to 'View as: Music' (for regular playlist) or 'Search as: Music' (for auto-playlist) during MM3->MM4 update.

The issue 2) is fixed too, just needs to be verified with the user's DB, but there shouldn't be a problem.

Test note: need to test the MM3->MM4 DB upgrade, i.e. it doesn't affect existing MM4 playlists for obvious reasons

There's a regression when editing columns in Entire Library.
