Thanks for testing and a comprehensive bug report.  The second problem
should be fixed in the upcoming release of the wtf package.  I know how to
fix the first one as well, but it seems (from looking at the source) that
this behavior was intended.  I've forwarded your report to the upstream
maintainer, and we should be reaching a resolution of some sort fairly
soon, at which point I'll release a new version of wtf.
