Longwell on OS X, naive questions

Now that it has finally dawned on me (now having read the revised
users-guide) that I can use longwell2 as its own server, independent from
PB, I'm having less trouble with the bib2rdf output that was giving me
fits a while ago (PB still chokes on it). On the other hand, there are
some things I don't understand:

1. Running longwell2 under linux I get a choice of "views" List, Calendar,
Map, and Graph. Under OS X these choices do not appear. What am I missing?

2. On my iBook, the facet boxes on the right are displayed old-style: a
short list of open boxes (in this case type, volume, and year, (why just
these I don't know)) with a list of properties below. Select a property,
and an open facet box appears above. This is quite different from the
linux display which shows each property in its own box with a double
chevron to expand or collapse the facet box. Is this the expected
behavior? Can anyone explain why the difference?

3. If I add an RDF file to the database thus:

[prometheus]jjcrump:~/longwell> ./longwell.sh run longwell.properties
src/rdf somebibliodata.rdf

I get several warnings like this:

W arning: Unable to set namespace prefix 'ns2' for namespace
'http://simile.mit.ed u/2005/04/longwell#': Prefix 'ns2' is already used
for another namespace on null at [-1,-1]

This does not seem to affect the loading of the model, and the new data
seem to be handled correctly. Is this the expected behavior?

Still finding my way,
