I found this on Creative ZEN, but I'd guess it is present on all players.

Playlist Catalogue > Add to New Playlist places the caret /after/ the extension http://i.imgur.com/C8zcSto.png , the default result of the user entering character is a filename having a different extension http://i.imgur.com/D5aEiA8.png and hence unrecognised by RB.

User workaround: Click Up, Left, Left, Left, Left, Down

Proposed fix: place the caret at the end of the basename http://i.imgur.com/ahtOfnm.png

Even better would be to hide the extension.

This would protect it against less direct inadvertent user edits too.

And it would also prevent any deliberate user edit to the extension, but I can't see why anyone would want to do that, given any change makes the playlist inaccessible to RB. If there was a good reason, this use could be allowed by making the input control's inclusion of the extension conditional on Files > Settings > Show Filename Extensions.
