In what way was it buggy?

With "full size" do you mean fullscreen? To enter fullscreen mode,
first select the "Fullscreen Mode" checkbox _then_ click on your
preferred resolution.

To access the chatline, press right shift+enter. (Yes it's not very
intuitive. I'd much prefer it to be simply 'tab' as is standard in a
lot of other games.)

What do mean by production 'queue'? The worklist dialog?

Middle-clicking in the research dialogs didn't work for me either now.
However, right-clicking produced the desired result. Strange.

I reported the former bug two years ago; haven't encountered the latter.

This command has been removed in 2.1. Instead, the player dialog
should show scores. The SDL client hasn't implemented this yet.
