It sounds like a bug in the code that tries to sniff out the mime type
of the .m3u files.  This code lives in the gnome-vfs module.

Can you please file a bug about this at under
the gnome-vfs component.  Also, please attatch at least one of the .m3u
files that are wrongly sniffed into that bug report.
