reproduced, is something to do with the genre handling it seems (from a quick look at a crash dump).
checked a bit more and is due to there not being any genre and some quirks with just doing 'update' when there hasn't been any edits actually made.

Files in the Playlist Editor can be added to the Library using the Send To menu and my opinion is that files should not be added merely because their metadata is edited.
with the coding of things, it is intended as that's what happened with taking the library implementation and quickly porting it for the pledit. i had meant to add in the means to choose between the behaviour (which would have been an ini option due to the time of when the feature was added) that happened (which will add or update in the library) or allow for it only to update if already in the library along with both actions always trying to update the local file tag (if the option is enabled).

if the library isn't present then it'll work as is being talked about, but when the library is present, it's going to add as it also helps to match the rating behaviour which goes in the library. so not as nice as people would like but with the timings of things and with ensuring consistency with other behaviour, adding to the library is a necessity and fully expected.
