Hi Steven, 

I can't answer all of your questions but I thought I'd take care of the last 
two and leave the remainder for Guy to address.

Ouch.  Very much a bug.  I filed it here:

Sorry about this - there had been a miscommunication between Guy and myself 
about this.  The fix for this will be included in the 1.2 release coming out 
very soon.

Best of luck to you!  Please keep us informed of how things are going.
