Both should be fixed in the next build.

No, it's on my own todo-list to fix this.

Can't answer that one. My English - Danish dictionary translates novice
and beginner to the same word :-)

Noise is used for the settings lower than Expert.

The integration of rollouts in the hint dialog and the sync between hint
and annotation is work in progress. Don't expect this to change anytime

The double decision requires both rollouts as well as the equity for
"double, pass".

I've put the remainer of your suggestions on my local TODO list, I'll
