Regarding Bug #1: While it's not supposed to stay there, usually walking into the "leaving area" and coming back should trigger panel again. Put that on my minor issues list.
Regarding Bug #2: To reproduce this, it would be interesting to know what exactly you did. You activated the free cam mode and then what? Usually, when a dinosaur happens to end up in the collision, it's walking to the next unoccupied spot immediately. but if you weren't able to do anything anymore, something more drastic must have crashed. Can't reproduce that without a proper step by step report, sadly. :/
