if i were to guess, i'd say that there won't be a 'fix' for 1), as this seems like intended behaviorthe file may be the same, but it's not the same 'item'...this may seem like a technicality, but it makes sensefurthermore, there is stuff that would break if the behavior would be changed
People say "I'm listening to X", not "I'm listening to X from Playlist2".
So I would be surprised if this detail was intended behavior because I think it reduces the quality of the user experience (just a little bit, though). If you're listening to a song, why wouldn't foobar show it to you?

Second, if you see an item playing in one playlist, the next item is the one below that. If foobar indicated them as playing in both lists, which item would be next?
1) When I switch the playlist, the currently playing item isn't marked as "Playing" even though it's the same file (albeit listed in a different playlist). I suspect the fix should be relatively easy to implement.
Regarding the other replies: the argument is not about how the item is represented internally by foobar or about what makes sense technically, but whether it makes sense to help the user identify visually instances of the same file in different playlists.[...] (To take things further -- I would even be interested in a solution that helps me easily identify different versions of the same song, say the album version vs the live version.)

Not that I'm opposed to changing it again
What about the upgraded Spectrum Analyzer? :-) Any chance to get an update, for those of us who like the Default UI?
I ended up adding a new column to the PlaylistView named "IsPlaying" with the pattern $if(%isplaying%,'X',). (Edit: obviously this doesn't work since %isplaying% refers to the specific song instance.)If anyone can suggest an elegant way to solve the problem, please let me know. Thanks!
$if(%isplaying%, ['['%tracknumber%']' ]%title%, <<['['%tracknumber%']' ]%title%>>)
