Nope, I hadn't: it was still easter here. Thanks for fixing these!

I made a quick pass and fixed one other minor one.

These require discussion, however:

The question boils down to what our preferred error treatment is:  
masking the error and attempting to continue or flagging it.

My preference is that hard syntax errors are flagged (such as  
overspecifying a dimension, or specifying both name and something  
else), and soft errors, which depend on the underlying media item, are  
masked.
