My playlists have vanished

When I connected my iPod to my iMac (a 27" i5 core running 10.6.6) a few minutes ago, the sidebar in iTunes rewrote itself and all the playlists vanished! (The iPod didn't appear, either.) I disconnected the iPod and rebooted the iMac, but that didn't help--still no playlists. The Library seems to be all right.
I have a backup (clone) that's a couple of weeks old. I think the playlists haven't changed since the backup. But how do I restore the playlists from the backup? I don't want to just copy the old iTunes folder to replace the present one, because the Library HAS changed, adding podcasts, and some new files to old playlists.
