Any ideas on these?

Short versions of the questions:

1. Why does Emacs ignore 2 out of 3 agenda custom commands, which I defined 
through the customize interface and appear in correct syntax in my ~/.emacs?

2. Why does (org-agenda-sorting-strategy (quote (time-up))) have no effect in a 
tags-todo search?


Details, for context:
