Version: 2.3.0 (using KDE 4.4.1)
Installed from: Archlinux Packages
The latest version allows one to right click the playlist and select "Show in Media Sources". This runs a search on the collection browser and shows the song.
Unfortunately, when the search term is cleared using the 'x' in the lineEdit, the sorting is reset to Artist/Album. I use the Genre/Artist/Album sorting and it doesn't return to that.
This may be related to the cause of the bug, but I believe there used to be a check mark against the currently used sorting order in the sort menu. That check mark doesn't appear anymore in 2.3.0.
If you need more info, just ask!
