Question VLC loading default playlist or any other playlist from command line

I need help at loading playlists for VLC from command line.
I have an .m3u playlist that loads fine if I use the "Load Playlists" function from GUI, but if I execute
vlc myplaylist.m3u
vlc --open myplaylist.m3u
it does weird stuff, it infinitely grows the active playlist, flashing the play and pause buttons and doesn't actually play anything, being stuck in a playlist growing loop.
It does this if I use "Open" function in GUI instead of "Load Playlist" as well.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
