Yes you are right the bug is still present. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Concerning the feature request. considering if you got albums with a lot of images this will not reflect changes to image names or deleting of images. Alternatively images can be viewed in the database table sf_media_content
a) Excuse me I am not sure i understand correctly your question. Can you explain a little more?
b) each image represents binary data and that is how we save it. There is no advantage over that since the images are still displayed.
