maybe disable the service in labs and then re-enable it?  Id imagine that would just reset everything.

I have this same issue, too. After accidentally deleting a Smart Label, I cannot restore it. I've disabled and re-enabled the entire Smart Labels feature, but that did not restore the missing Smart Label or its filter.

OS: OSX 10.6
Program used to access Gmail: Safari
Anti-virus software: Sophos
Plug-ins: N/A

I think it should be possible to restore them :

Create a new filter, pick Category (Bulk, Forums, etc) 3rd down on the right but leave the rest blank, Click Next Step

Dropdown the Apply-The-Label list, pick New Label & enter the label name (eg Bulk) (or pick the existing label if you've only deleted the filter)

Tick the Skip-The-Inbox box(top left) and Also-Apply-To-X-Conversations(bottom right), if you want it to do those

finally, Click Create Filter

Hope that helps

there are 4 smart filters:
label:^smartlabel_group
label:^smartlabel_notification
label:^smartlabel_promo
label:^smartlabel_newsletter

to create or edit one of the default filters:  put one of these into the "
Has the words:" box of the filter

Jeff's is how to access the labels directly, so you can use those label names elsewhere (eg: in the search)
I think they'll work the same. :-)
