Thanks again, Christoph.

I have the increased priority for overdue tasks off, so that is not the 
issue either. So it looks as if this is a bug and I will send a message to 

Re your problem #2: I agree, and I think this is in general a symptom of 
the way MLO looks at tasks without due date; e.g. it is not possible to set 
recurrences based on start date (as opposed to due date) and it is in 
general impossible to set recurrences for tasks without a due date. In most 
methodologies (including GTD), tasks without due dates are an essential 
part, but MLO tends to ignore their specifics. It's as far as I am 
concerned the major weakness in what is still the best task management 
suite out there,
