also another "bug" which will annoy the crap out of you when you finally see it:

when the chat window (even in minimized form) pops up, the left 1/2 of entire the screen has a darker shade to it (as if its like a poorly hidden large version of the chat window).

you can notice it when you look at the middle of the screen, there will be a vertical line as you can see the contrast between the left and right 1/2's of the screen.

That sounds like a console carry over bug. That is too bad.
