The "make the starting level follow the active menu item" option is wonderful. The only problem is that setting "Children of active menu" gives me a menu that is identical to "Active menu item." So, for example, I have a 4th-level page. I want to have one menu showing where they are ("Starting level: 4th level, active menu item") and showing children ("Starting level: 4th level, children of active menu item"). But it doesn't work - it shows active menu only.
Related to that, and maybe this should be in its own thread as a feature request, I wouldn't even need the children functionality (though of course it has other uses) if there was a way to make the block title link to the parent item (which is set as the title anyway, so that shouldn't be too hard...). Is that possible?
