Although I'm quite familiar with Mathematica, I always try to keep an open mind and don't use it as golden hammer. I'm particularly good at things that are fun, for instance

comment Parts of Plot3D / ListPlot3D obscured by non-transparent tick labels (v10.0.1)
I can't reproduce this on Ubuntu, but for me, the greek characters look really f***ed up

@Lena Can you check in a terminal, what the command echo ~ shows you? This is your home directory.

comment Modifying parameters: Set::setps in the part assignment is not a symbol
@erdorath Could you make clear whether your goal is to change the content of the original variable list1? Because then, non of the answer will help you (except the first block of kgugler which doesn't use a Module).

comment A documented syntax of FileNames doesn't work?
@Mr.Wizard It was meant only half as joke. I was referring to test-driven development which is similar only that you write unit tests for components that don't exist yet. Then you hit random keys until you come up with code that fulfills the test..

comment Invisible number?
It would be extremely helpful if you could add a use-case for your problem. What do you want to do with your invisible magnitudes later? This highly influences how you have to implement it.

Maybe they have a documentation driven development at WRI. They first write the doc and then implement the stuff and some guy went home early :-)

comment How can I disable the “convert to freeform linguistic input” dialog box?
@JasonB No problem. You also could try to write more cryptic function names like f3q904m[x$001a_]:=... to prevent that Mathematica believes it could help you with natural language :-)

comment Trial version 10 vs Version 10 Prerelease 13
I can tell you that for me the Shadow messages was due a paclet in my .Mathematica user folder. I just deleted this one. For me it was under .Mathematica/Paclets/Configuration and I used fgrep to search for FailedQ to find the problematic file.
