Aren't these backup and other issues just "Known Issues" with the current public beta build of Media Player. I saw a bunch of people freaking out over on techmeme.com, but I don't see the big deal. Basically these things are broken in Beta 2 and Microsoft let everyone know about it in this Reame.txt type of page.

I'm sure they will address them before the player goes to RTM.
