amarok strange problem, it doesn't want to make playlist

Hi all!
I have Fedora 11 and amarok-2.1.1-1.fc11.i586.
Last week after some updates and for now I have a problem with amarok, it doesn't want or can't to make a list of song for playing!!! So it can't play anymore.

All the buttons and menu items like clear playlist, new playlist, add songs to playlist etc. don't do anything!!!
Also doesn't work drag'n'drop mp3 file(s) from file list to play list.
When I make a click and drag the file, arrow appears with a "plus" sign as usually, but when I drop it in playlist area it just disappears and nothing happens.
This is very strange. Earlier it was all fine with it, but now it doesn't.

I've already removed amarok and installed again, cleared all files *amarok* in the user's directory, but still without success

By the way, it still works fine under root account.

I had a similar problem a few weeks ago. I solved it by clearing up .kde/share/apps/amarok/* and rescanning my collection (Settings->Configure Amarok->Collection->Rescan Collection. But maybe that's what you already did (cleared all files *amarok* in the user's directory)?

If somebody's still interesting, I've found a solution.
Just exit KDE session and delete .xine directory in your user's home directory, for example:

After that it's working.
All other things about reinstalling app / removing other directories didn't help.
