I'm having the same exact problem! And running latest OS 10.7.1, and iTunes 10.4 (80).
I tried making a duplicate of the playlsit, and it shows up no problem. But when deleting the original, and naming the new playlist the same — it turns invisible.
I don't want to have to rename all my playlists either... that's not a solution. Weird bug!
Any solutions? And why is this happening?
Maybe there's a way to re-set iTunes in some way... or some sort of error/consistency checker that can be run?

Same exact problem here. After a creative light bulb went off in my head, I sat down to produce a host of new smart playlists and simply can't act on my idea because more than half of the playlists are simply not showing up. Just one of a plethora of issues I'm having since upgrading to Lion. Apple, how about throwing some of that extra cash you have lying around into fixing this sluggish and buggy OS. If not, I know a certain government who could use a slice of the pie.

Yeah! I also made nice smart ones once! They still work for me... I mean, they're all working, I'm just getting weird lines where the source names of playlsits are: —————
Do you get the same? For a pic, see my post: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3278074?tstart=0
Do yours work?

I solved it (for me)!
I found that no two playlists, folders, or smart playlists can be called the same name. Even putting a space one of the names them solves it.
Does that work for you? Does renaming work?

Rudolfensis, seems to work for me too. Thanks. Took me a while to find them but I have some identically named playlists/folders down in my "source playlists". I started renaming them and now I can choose them in the drop-down.
