After my reporting of this and other problems, with using AL, both Khadija Phool and Bob Mayer answered promptly, and positively to the concerns raised.
To quote the latter "We will look further into these and hopefully be able to release an update shortly which addresses them."
So, we will have to wait and see.
The more interest that is shown in the product, by pointing out clearly and politely issues as they occur, it might just produce some improvements. Fingers crossed.
