(1) I think you'll have to deal with one extra mouse click. Did the previous version default to the "Contents" tab? I don't recall... Other iPods show the Summary tab when first connected, which is equivalent to the Settings tab on older (1st and 2nd gen) shuffles, so the way it works seems consistent and logical.
(2) That does not happen for me.

1) Yes the previous version of itunes did default to the other page with songs. Usually you only had to go to settings very rarely, like when you first set up the ipod.
2) Mmm -- and you do manual deletes? I wonder why mine does it. I have to take about twice as many steps just to erase and upload new songs/podcasts now.

I actually use Autofill, but I just tried it to check if what you described happens. It did not.
Are you already on the iTunes window. If you are using another window, you have to click once to put focus on the iTunes window, and click a second time to select the item on the list. But that's probably not what you are describing.
You're not using a "right" click for the first click... Then, you have to do a "left" click to get out ot the contextual menu.
In another program, such as in Mail's email list window (using the Classic layout), does the same thing happen?

This is indeed a change introduced into iTunes 11. I have not yet found a workaround but I have filed a bug at radar.apple.com. You should too.
It kind of makes sense for the full-feature devices (iPhone, iPad) to default to the settings screen, and it has always done so. This is not a change.
It makes sense for the iPod Shuffle to default to the "On This iPod" page, and it always did before iTunes 11. I need the Settings page once a year (maybe). I need the "On This iPod" page two or three times a day.
