To add to this list:

(4) cookies, probably important enough to hold up 2.8.1
  (a) cookies are stored in memory in reverse order than they appear in
      the cookie file, and then re-written in reverse order. I've taken
      quick looks around and can't see where this is happening. This causes
      problems where cookies are sent to the remote server in the wrong
