I can confirm the same behaviour Mark describes in point (1) above on a 
genuine RHEL7 system, so as Johnny says, "it is working like the 
upstream one", so no bug there from a CentOS perspective. However, it's 
not consistent (for me) and not troublesome enough for me to have taken 
note as to when it may or may not occur.

I am not able to meaningfully comment on point (2).
