Having the same problem as you at the moment, actually.
I recently got a new laptop and copied my library to it from an external hard drive I back up to. Connected my ipod, synced it to the 'new' library (which took a while given the 14,000 odd songs!)... and now every time I reconnect it there are about 250 songs that re-sync every time.
Did not have this problem on my old computer, and it only occurs when the ipod syncs on initial connection (i.e. if I leave it plugged in and hit 'sync', this does not happen.
I discovered that deleting the songs from your library and re-ripping them fixes the problem (although I have not done this for all of them yet).
Well, I guess I should be happy that I only have about 2 dozen to re-rip.
I hope Apple can fix this, 'cause as our libraries grow, this will become more tiresome on a much larger scale.
It's bad enough that iTunes doesn't automatically monitor and update the Music folder (like Media Monkey, Windows Media Player, etc., etc.) but to have to re-rip CDs is a real pain!
