This is from the xmms man page ....
***
xmms plwindow newstate -session n --- Returns the current playlist window visibility state, 0 for invisisble, 1 for visible. Sets the state to 'newstate'.
***

Try doing this... Hope this helps....

Okie... In your home directory, you should see a .xmms directory

~/.xmms

And in that you would find a file named 'config'

Its a pretty long file, and so I am just giving you one line which you might have a look at... this line in my file looks like

playlist_visible=FALSE

What does yours look like ???

Just doing a normal ls won't make it show because it is a hidden directory. Do a ls -a

HEY!!! i think for the first time ever i might be able to help somebody. i'm using mandrake 9.2, same version of xmms, everything. i had the same problem; all you have to do is change the font for the playlist. it's in options-->preferences-->fonts-->playlist. hope this helps.
