You raise a couple of points that several people are complaining about.
However, you take it that bit further by directly moaning about the
author of the code.

I mainly use Microsnot packages. I know that the things you complain of
can occur with expensive software packages and even OS's.
However, there are some differences between D.Net and MS. D.Net is a
non-profit organisation that is furthering serious technical ideas whilst
giving *us* all a bit of competitive fun. The people running it don't get
a large cash handout from me, you or the companies who sell us our nice
The coding for D.Net is currently closed (I think?). I assume that if
they can / decide to choose a more open development style (roll on the
Bazaar :0) then you will be queuing up to spend your personal time, for no
financial gain, on 'fixing' these 'programmer errors'.
