One problem I have is not being able to switch from the LCD to
[ideally] Both the LCD and a Projector.  This is normally when I am at
a conference.  it is really irritating to have to change the BIOS for
this.  And, worse when I can usually get only one or the other of the
displays to work, but not both.

Anyone have a solution to this?
I haven't tried the T61 with an external display yet, but I'll add that test to my list. I suspect that again, it's an ACPI thing, as all of these keys are grabbed by ACPI (akin to the volume issue - do your volume controls work?).
