Also - didn't notice this until just now (for 5.72) -
1. I have "Skip posts shown in the slider from WordPress loop" enabled and those posts both show under the slider and are FULL - NOT excerpts.
2. As stated above - I have "Display excerpts on home page" checked. The posts that are in the slider show full with all of the excerpts under that.
Sorry - this would be way too large to do a screen shot. I don't want to keep all of these bugs on my site until you look at it - I'm changing back now.
