More Z1012 quirks

We have all read the thread on the Z1012 aperture software bug:
http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1011&thread=28833475

I just received my Z1012 IS today.
pro: noise level is better than I expected for a 1/2.3 CCD
pro: I like the feel of the rubberizing

Overall, not bad. EXCEPT FOR...

The quirk that really annoys me is that, when taking videos, I cannot switch from Electronic View Finder to the LCD panel without stopping the video recording first.

Also, if I record video for (say) 25 minutes then upon stopping the video recording the screen displays "Processing" for over 30 seconds (yes, I have a Class 6 high speed SDHC card). Mind you, I can switch from EVF/LCD during this time, although the camera is otherwise useless...

(let me know if there is anything I can do to fix either of these)
(Maybe I will find other things as I continue to check it out...)
