@jdow: I hope you are wrong when you suspect that new features introduce new issues in unrelated parts of the SDR console. For me, this would be a clear indication to step back and seriously question my development process.
This is a known phenomenon when adding features to a project that already meets its original specifications. The new requirements were not known at the time the design was made. So choices that limit certain sorts of changes get made for one reason or another. Adding this new feature that was not provisioned for in the design can lead to violating the original design structure leading to odd seeming failures. This is probably what led Simon to move into V3 rather than simply improving V2. He was able to add features that were exceptionally difficult to add to V2 by simply starting over. He probably recycled much or most of the working code. But I bet the internal structure is noticeably different.
