I was aware of those 2 bugs and, in fact, I looked at them again last night before I posted. The OP didn't say you had TP 1.0 beta 4 as it says now, only that you had TP 1.0. The bugs say that they were fixed for beta 4 and since I didn't know whether you were still using beta 3, this is where the confusion came from, especially since I have never tried to duplicate the bug.
If it is still a bug in beta 4 then yes, Bloc will have to look at it again.
Out of curiosity, what areas is your shoutbox set to show in? If it is set to show in all actions, try adjusting it so that it shows in all actions except for "post" and see if that makes a difference.
