I wonder if this could be caused by the invalid XML files written by the
preview releases? 

Are the broken .m3u files older and were they viewed with a preview
release of Nautilus while the working ones are newer?  If so, this may be
your problem.

There is a discussion of the problem in the Nautilus Release Notes (under
the Help menu), along with a description of how one can fix the problem
using 'nautilus-xml-migrate <directory>'.
