    Several times a song in my library will have an exclamation point next to it, and will say the original file cannot be found. Sometimes it will create a duplicate song that does work, one time when it did not I clicked on the option to locate the file, and was able to find it and click on it, and another time the file had disappeared completely from my iTunes library folder.

    I don't mess around with the iTunes library in the Finder, so anyone know what is going on here?

    [I first noticed that it happened after transferring files to my new PB, but months later I'm still seeing a few isolated occurrences]

    are all of your songs in one Music folder?

    there are a few AppleScripts out there that can fix the problem you've described. just search for something like 'iTunes AppleScript'. judging be the different scripts that deal with that problem i'm guessing it's not really limited to a small number of people.
