I am not able to repeat your issues anymore.
Idle powers were fine with V7, on my test computer.
I have not done thorough idle tests with V7.2, but they looked O.K.

As for the high frequency loop stuff, I no longer see any issues there
either. I tried several loops frequencies, and did one for a couple of hours.

I'll try again later today, as there is a test running now (frequency sweep)
that takes about 4 hours.
