this is a new problem. I assume you are using beaTunes 5.1.0? Correct? On OS X?
Do you use an iTunes-based library? If so, is "synchronization on window activation" on or off (see general preferences)?

OK - that may be the culprit. Please turn it off. Here's why:
When doing something in beaTunes, changes are communicated to iTunes right away. The opposite is not true, because iTunes is not capable of notifying beaTunes. Instead, beaTunes has to parse an XML file, which iTunes writes whenever something changes. Reading and writing of that file is not instantaneous. So when you switch back and forth between iTunes and beaTunes while modifying a playlist, you may at some point import an old state from an old XML file.
So instead of automatically synchronizing with iTunes, you are probably better off to select File -> Synchronize every now and then to read changes from iTunes.
