Thanks for the information. Good to know I'm not just doing something obviously 
wrong right now.

Should I be filing bug reports for these kinds of issues at this time or wait 
until further releases when some of the pending patches have been applied?

I much prefer listing items automatically but I could see this being 
problematic in huge installations of there is no "paging" functionality when 
you reach over X number of records.

I'll spend more time with the UI tomorrow and see if I can get a feel for the 
other questions you're looking for feedback on.
