These two issues would appear to be problems in the way you have
defined your Bibliographic Frameworks. Could you double-check that
you have mapped items fields to the items table in your framework? More
details on these issues would be useful to determine what the problem
might be.

Thanks to Henri-Damian, it has been fixed in CVS (added two lines
to Biblio.pm. Here's the changelog:
