Am I the only one that thinks these three problems make Premiere virtually unusable?

Don't get me wrong, I use Premiere every day and have been using it for years, but these three Premiere problems literally make me want to smash my computer every day. Does anyone have the same problems? How do you deal with it?

1. I'm a fast editor. If I hit the space bar too quickly after making an edit it will not play, so I wait a second then hit the space bar again to make it play. It's like I need to give Premiere a second to catch up it's little brain after an edit. I find myself wanting to smash my keyboard ten times a day. Premiere should ALWAYS play when I hit the space bar.

2. Sometimes when I'm editing fast, I zoom into the timeline with the magnifier tool and it zooms waaaaaaaaaay in by accident. My guess is that I made a very very tiny one pixel movement of the cursor when I clicked on the timeline so it thought I drew a very tiny rectangular zoom marquee' so it zoomed waaaaay in. Of course then I have to zoom waaaaaay back out by Alt click click clicking.

3. Even though "Snap playhead in timeline when snap is enabled" is unchecked in the preferences I have the following problem. When I'm zoomed out and trying to shift clips around with "snap" on, the clips keep getting stuck against the playhead. I then have to zoom waaaay in so I can get the clip to properly snap against the appropriate clip.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
