Sorry for my slow response, and thank you for the testing! This was very
thorough, and I will definitely be coming back to you for testing in the
future :)

So far as I know, all the behaviors you've noted here are bugs, but I've
also been able to reproduce the bugs in the Emacs 26 branch. Which
doesn't mean I won't fix them -- it would be a pleasure to fix bugs that
I didn't cause myself, for once -- but I might hold off on them until
this branch has landed. One thing at a time...

Thanks again!
