I have made the same observation loudly to GCG. 
I'm kinda wondering when they are going to publish all the bugs and 
annoyances that have been found so far.

Others: 
an entry in the main list may look selected but is not.
Profilescan can mess up big time if more than one sequence is searched.
--- that's all I have time for now folks.
