Thanks for the report!

The first two would be hard to fix, and none seem really critical to me,
so I'm ignoring them.

Funny.  The light lines seem the right color to me, i.e. they match the
button's color.

Hyperbolic and spherical (software) shading -- was really broken, and has
been for a long time I guess, wherever there were lights outside the unit
sphere (as our default lights all are).  It's now somewhat fixed, i.e.
it works in the common cases, though it's unreliable for lights attached
to objects.  Somebody should fix this someday.

Both are now fixed.
