Yeah, there are other problems with the source list currently that I see. 
right clicking on a playlist if the library source is selected gives the
library source context menu, not the playlist one.

I'm in agreement for the most part here, except that it does effect the
program if songs have been deleted or change from the file system.

This is my biggest problem with it at the moment.

Definately need to go back in.

I noticed this too.

Seems pretty fixable.

Thats odd, try reloading your library (sry if thats kinda drastic, but its
under development, so it should be expected)

I totally agree, the small view should be simple and doesn't need to have
the UI elements of most main apps IMO... in particular, a menu bar and a
status bar, although a menu bar is probably ok/needed for rhythmbox.
