The first one sounds like you've clicked on a note just as the Score/Piano Roll editor was loading and pressed 'M', which isn't crazy.
I haven't experienced the second one - the problem you're having moving regions only seems possible to me if you move them into a place in your arrangement where you've already got mute or solo automated at that particular part of the timeline (sometimes you haven't chosen to copy or move the automation when you've copied regions when you should have done - well, it happens).
Of course, there are well known bugs like the fade file problem, which has been around so long that they've had a menu item for you to delete it for quite a while as well, so that seems like a basic issue that should have been addressed by now.
The tab to transient is less easy to diagnose, but all I can say is that the developers obviously make software work at its absolute optimum with the latest hardware/OS/software combination, so an application like Logic isn't gonna be the same experience to all users.
I know, it is very frustrating when you just need it to work - you need to get that soloing problem sorted out first - check if you have a channel in the Mixer that you don't have in the Arrange that might have a solo/mute - I know that its obvious, but its easy to overlook basic stuff sometimes (that's usually when it starts to get interesting because you're going off into different ideas - that's what you want though, innit?).

i havent switched to 916 and 917 becuz i read about the bugs...
Back up your copy of the Logic app, then upgrade. That way you have both versions and can run either one. No risk to upgrading that way, and it always makes sense to at least try out a new version to see if bugs are fixed.

Completely agree... This bug is like a freakin mosquito and it is quite mind-blowing that it's still around after all these years; There are a bunch more too which just about have me ready to move to a different DAW; That said there are several cool things about Logic, if they were to work as advertised (clicks & pops when using Flex anyone?)
HOWEVER, the solution to your problem, when bouncing stems, in which case the solo bug is particularly annoying, is to also soloing the regions in addition... ctrl clicking the solobutton on the channelstrip will take care of it too, but don't rely on that;) Also replacing the affected channel strip with a new audio track (that doesn't have the solo bug) is an option
Happy audio production! Meditation and thorough research prior to f'in around and banging head on wall (which I still do sometimes) helps

Okay then how do you undo the score thing? if it isnt so crazy, when you have a session with a hundred tracks of midi, whats your solution
No your wrong about the region thing. I haven't done anyone of those things. thanks for inputing tho. It simply is a bug, and they have never sorted it out... I can simulate it over and over again, with a fresh session and one midi, and one audio track.

Sorry to hear you're still having a problem there - the kind of behaviour that you're observing can't be described as a 'bug', I think, because it doesn't happen to a lot of people, so there is a distinct possibility of an incompatibility with your OS and your machine architecture, if its probably more than 3 or 4 years old and you've upgraded to Lion or Mountain Lion - my recent machine with Lion and Logic works absolutely fine - so there's a possibility there, I know its not a good one - as has been said before. Apple are quite happy for you to keep replacing your machines frequently, but there is a logical side to that, as unfortunate as it may seem.
If I may indulge in a bit of personal experience - when I was a young musician we used to go into 4 track and 8 track analogue studios, so that involved having a plan about how we were going to record what we wanted to do beforehand - we had to decide which bits we were going to mix down and at what stage. I still have a bit of that process burnt into my brain, so I never have huge track counts and tend to work on different parts of a piece as separate projects - for example a song may have a songtitle-end or -intro or whatever project file within the overall project folder, which to me is is a better way of working than having huge track counts, which may be the reason that Logic is struggling with what you're doing.
The only definite for me is that there is a problem with fade files and that's something that's been around for a long time - it does seem odd why the development team don't address an old problem like that, but I'd guess that the Logic development team won't have the same vision as the guys at C-Lab/Emagic did.
