Similar problem with phone app Favorites... I would hit a favorite and the screen would go black and not dial out. I re-added a few favorites and even moved the order around and things started working again. No more black screen and it actually dials the right contact now.

Seriously, this isn't a new problem. I've had this happen lots of times, just delete a song and sync it back in and it's update the library file
