Replying to myself, I'd like to note that I found a solution to problem #1 and
to problem #3 in these posts:
What I did was (as root):
# mkdir -p /var/lock/console
# touch /var/lock/console/shlomif (where "shlomif" is your user name).
This fixed this problem. Since /var/lock was misplaced due to the /usr move
transition, it was indeed caused by it.
I'll see if it also fixed problem No. 2.

<mst> I find it’s usually safe to assume that whatever shlomif’s doing, there
isn’t a good reason for it.
