Item link / Magic Weapon bugs

I've noticed two potential bugs while playing the game. The first involves an item link failing to work for a particular item. The item in question is a rare torso item named Cannibal Vestments (screenshot here http://i.imgur.com/XxaQW.jpg). I have tried taking out the gems, and relogging, but it does not appear to fix the problem. I am not experiencing this problem with any other items, so I believe there's simply a missing reference somewhere.

The second bug involves the Wizard skill Magic Weapon. The tooltip says that the skill increases weapon damage by 10%, but in reality it is applied twice, increasing weapon damage by a total of 21%. I first noticed this when playing with the Familiar rune Sparkflint, which states that it increases damage by 12%, and actually does so. I couldn't figure out why Sparkflint was not increasing damage as much as an unruned Magic Weapon. I looked over the DPS calculations and it doesn't seem like weapon damage is multiplied by itself at any point, so I believe that this is a bug.

I've had the same problem with other rare armor pieces with two sockets (both pants and chest armor). Couldn't link them in chat.

And I really hope the Magic Weapon bug is fixed soon. 21%, or 32.25% with rune, is really too good not to take it in a build. I would like to have a choice.
