Yes, unless I'm wrong I experienced these problems from 1.5.something to 1.6.1. I didn't take notes as it was in the middle of a deadline-crunch so I just fixed the code and moved on (long, stupid story about why the upgrade before a deadline...). It's just that the issues mentioned above seem to have hit me too and I wanted to mention that. But unhelpfully, I think, without code, and now I've hijacked this thread! Sorry.
