Don't know about the other problems, but the rotated text on the mac is 
still not fixed.

I believe that in the (yet unannounced) version 6, the Mac front end 
will finally abandon QuickDraw (which is deprecated) in favor of 
Quartz. There should be other changes as well to the graphics 
rendering.
