Those bugfixes should go in indeed.

I personally think putting the arrows next to the corresponding item (month, 
year) makes the dialogue much better. Now that I see the difference, I'm 
reminded that I often have to think for that action. And I'd rather do 
thinking work when it's about choosing food, or something. I would *like* to 
see that getting in, but I'd also understand if people object and want it to 
be held back until trunk/ opens for features again. It does change the 
behaviour, although I fail to see the downsides. (Not taking translations 
into account here.)
