There are a number of bugs we'd like to have fixed in Math Overflow, and a number of features we'd like implemented, but we only actually have control over the cosmetic aspects of the site. If a real feature is going to be implemented, it has to be done either by the Stack Exchange team or the Stack Overflow team. So I propose we have a central place where we collect the feature requests and bug reports on meta.stackoverflow and meta.stackexchange that are important to Math Overflow. If you have an account at meta.SE of meta.SO, please vote up the ones you think are important.
If you find another bug/feature-request on meta.SE or meta.SO that you think is relevant to Math Overflow, please post it here.
I've been getting the "30 Second" message a few times recently as well. I don't have any reputation over on stackexchange so can't vote it up, though.
I'm not sure if this is already listed as the bug on meta.SE in its current reincarnation, but I'm still getting random log-outs.
@fedja: Yes, I forgot to add that one to the list (I've updated it now). Hopefully, they'll fix it in beta 5. If you really want to search for questions that have a pair of tags, you can do it by typing the url yourself. In fact, you can do arbitrary boolean combinations of tags; see tip number 12 on the Tips and Tricks page. Basically, when you search for a pair of tags, you get sent to a URL like http://mathoverflow.net/questions/tagged/algebraic-geometry+commutative-algebra, which is broken. Just change the "+" to a " " (space) in the URL and it works! http://mathoverflow.net/questions/tagged/algebraic-geometry commutative-algebra
I appear to now have enough rep on meta.S[EO] to vote up. Given that a few things have changed since you wrote your original list, can you edit it to reflect the current state-of-play (or confirm that all those questions are still outstanding)? Then I'll happily go over and vote for stuff.
I've updated the list to remove the ones that have been completed (or declined). The most important one in my mind right now is the fact that the preview doesn't agree with the final output, which has been causing lots of confusion about underscores. I've also submitted a 6 line fix for most of the problems, so it should be easy for Fog Creek to implement.
Here's one I'm tempted to post in the appropriate place, let me know if I shouldn't: a moderator (or sufficiently high rep person) making a question "community wiki" masks the identity of the original questioner (and, I presume, an edit on a question already marked "community wiki" does the same), whereas an edit on an ordinary question does not. Even if a question is community wiki, I'd like to easily see who first asked the question.
Right, I went and voted for all on your list. I also posted my feature request, figuring that if no-one agrees with me then they can just ignore it! If you do, it's here.
@Dave Penneys: I've modified the CSS so that questions that have both interesting and ignored tags are slightly "transparent", but still a different color. Is that to your liking?

Does this thread have any purpose nowadays? Is MO ever going to get any new features, at least those that depend on voting on meta.S[OE]?
Amen. Or even my own answers. I often remember answering a question and wanting to see what I wrote. My alternatives are to page through my answers by hand or to run a google site search for speyer together with some keywords. Someone with access to the database should be able to do much better.
Of course, I could learn to use the MO public dumps.
@David: I think JHS is talking about here on meta, which the search interface is rather primitive...
Oh, I think you are right. I've never particularly wanted to search meta, but I see why someone might.
Sometimes when a question is deleted and there are answers (necessarily with less than 2 upvotes), the answers get marked as deleted by the answerers, even though it is pretty clear from the timing that the deletion was triggered by the questioner. Here are two examples (for people with at least 10k points or mod powers):
I noticed this too, but it looks like it's largely a presentation bug. The owners did delete those answers, but before the OP deleted the question. The actual time of deletion can be seen in the revision histories.
Andrew installed an advanced search module for the nforum, so it shouldn't be hard to install it for meta.MO.
