Same problem here with my iPhone 3G. I have the latest iTunes and OS X. And my iPhone is configured just like yours (Audiobooks, Purchased and a device playlist).
I always get exactly 400 songs deleted from my phone and then re-copied to the device. None of the playlists has 400 titles in it, so I have no idea how come.
Also, from time to time I enjoy a normal sync. But I cannot reproduce either behaviour (i.e. have not found any pattern).
I hope this will get fixed by a new iPhone software or iTunes release.
I have the same problem with both iPod Nano and a new iPod Touch. It started about a month ago, which leads me to suspect it was associated with the latest iTunes update, but I can't pin it down.
At first I thought it was only smart playlists, so I stopped syncing them. But the problem is there with "fixed" playlists as well.
It is only a nuisance but it is a daily nuisance as the sync which should take 15-20 seconds to download a couple of news podcasts now takes a couple of minutes. Any suggestions welcome!
