For what it's worth, 2) and 3) aren't reproducible with the current
version (from svn). To my knowledge, there have been no relevant
changes here since 2.2, I'd be very surprised if they were
reproducible with 2.2 (or earlier?), but I don't really have the time
to test. I still don't know what 1) is about, so I'm not sure if that
