Issues with the Lotus Notes Client

I've always tried to stay up to date with the many updates to the Lotus Notes client. We are now running 8.5.1 fixpack 4, but I have found some shortcomings that are annoying.

On 64 bit windows 7 machines the notes single logon does not work, we can move to their new "preferred" method (shared login) via a policy file, but this does not update the password for web access, and the shared login feature has to be manually removed first.

Also on 64 bit: when you try to drag the notes icon from the desktop onto the task bar: it does not stick. A minor point granted: but how come it always seems to be this client that is the last to conform to accepted standards?
