|A few WP34s questions|

I was playing with the newest version today, and I have a few questions.
1 - In program mode, if I press LBL then a key, it enters the keyboard scan code. Is this intended? Wouldn't it be more intuitive to enter the letter associated to the key?
2- After pressing LBL, if I press [g][ENTER] the display shows LBL' and then I can enter letters; is there a way to modify the overlay to show that if you want to enter ' you have to press [g][ENTER] and not [f][ENTER]?
3- After pressing LBL, if I just want to enter a single letter, I expected to be able to press [f][ENTER] which should be 'alpha'; but after pressing those keys, the display shows LBL 31. Again, is this intended?
4- Do three-letter alpha-commands take more than one step? Because after adding a few, the sum of total program steps plus free space isn't 506 any more...
5- If in run mode, I press XEQ then [f][ENTER], expecting to be able to enter a label, a program runs instead (I think it's the program I labeled 'A'). Again... is this intended?
I don't know if something changed lately or if it's always been like that and I didn't notice. But I seem to remember that the handling of [f][ENTER] was more consistent in always entering INPUT mode, while right now it only does so while in RUN mode, and not after XEQ or LBL.
Also [g][ENTER], sometimes it enters " ' " (after LBL or XEQ, it makes you enter several alpha characters) and sometimes just enters the single letter H.
That is, unless I totally messed up, after all the last two nights I only got 3 hours of sleep... in which case I apologize in advance! :)
