I am by no means a lawyer, but I have always though of PD as meaning that
noone else could license or copyright the original version.  I am not sure
about software, but I believe it is the same as with public domain music
where the original score is totally public domain, but if a composer writes
a modified version or an arrangement, they are allowed to copyright it.

also, if you release something to the public without a license, is it by
default public domain?

$.03 (the dow is up a little right now)
