Basically what happens is this:
I open VLC and go to my playlist and there are tons of folders there. I double-click on one and its icon changes to a folder icon and a plus sign appears next to it, but it stays closed. Then I need to double-click again to see what songs are in it.
Is this normal? On Ubuntu 11.10 I didn't have this problem, but now on my Linux Mint 14 Mate...I do.
