Hi, I can comment on the first two bugs.  The first is a bug. Minorly
irritating.  I can get the jist from reviewing the bottom of the screen, but
clearing this up would speed things a bit.
The second is not a bug.  It says zed when you pres the z, because it was
writtin by a dude just down the road from me in london ontario canada.
Here, we call that letter zed, as opposed to the american zee.  Dr. Seus
would never approve, but I like it.  Smile.
