Sorry it took me so long to get back to you!  Moderation on a mailing list 
is a two-edged sword, and I'm used to getting so much spam that I don't 
pay as much attention as I should to moderation requests.

Please try a newer version, like 0.7.1.  Most of the problems below are 
fixed in newer versions.

Already fixed in 0.7.1.

The section flags look correct in recent snapshot (soon to be 0.7.2; I've 
not yet checked 0.7.1 but it's worth a try).

Also works.

Haven't tried it, but I suspect it will work.

Again, please try with 0.7.1 or a recent snapshot and let me know if you 
run into any problems.
