Bug Description

I`m using PCBnew (20100330 SVN-R2488)-final, wxWidgets 2.8.9 Unicode on Windows
win32 version, windows xp

How the first bug detected:
Open the module editor from PCBnew -> Select library/module
Open Module properties -> 3d Settings -> Add 3d shape -> select 3d file.
Then changing Shape Scale, Shape offset, Shape Rotation and press Ok.
Selecting 3d View -> 3d View - No changes of Scale, Offset and Rotation angle detected.

The second bug (or feature?):
when linking the Part and Module in CvPCB {(20100330 SVN-R2488)-final, wxWidgets 2.8.9 Unicode on Windows} and viewing the part, don`t see the coordinates of mouse cursor.
CvPCB -> load netlist -> select the modue in right half of the window -> Press the "View selected Footprint"
In new opened window looking on the selected Footprint. While moving the mouse cursor for Module size and distance between pads checking - don`t see the mouse cursor coordinates. In earlier versions (for example, CvPCB (2007-07-09)-Unicode version based on wxWidgets 2.8.4) the lowest line of the Footprint viewer window shows the current mouse cursor coordinates. Is it possible to bring it back?

Thanks for your work.

Thanks for submitting this report. Bug reports go a long way to help
making Kicad a better product. For future reference, please submit one
bug per report. The current bug tracking system doesn't support
multiple resolutions against a single bug report so closing this bug
report properly will likely be difficult.

Thanks again,

First bug:
No bug: module editors works well.
But The 3D view is not automatically updated, so must be closed and reopened after changes on footprint.
Second bug:
Already fixed in Launchpad stable and testing version.
note also (20100330 SVN-R2488)-final is not the last stable kicad release.
