comment Some User Accounts Won't Remember Screen Resolution
@evolutionxbox unfortunately that hasn't helped, also I think that only fixes the problem if the system's resolution is wrong on the login window, for me some of the user accounts have the correct resolution, while others will change it, so it must be something user-specific not system-wide.

comment Applescript Service Won't Run From Some Applications
For those experiencing the same trouble, I found a program called BetterTouchTool; it's a free app that lets you configure a wide range of shortcuts and even enables a Windows style window snapping feature. I'd still like to know why I can't get Applescript to work, but this app solves the problem (and is better in many ways).

comment Mounting Encrypted Core Storage Volume(s) On Startup
Thanks for the response! The script has some useful pieces within it, but it looks like the important part is actually just setting unlock as an allowed app in the keychain entry. I wonder if the same thing could be achieved simply by allowing diskutil to access the password entry, and then call it with the -recoverykeychain option pointing to the system keychain? Seems like that might be all unlock really does, albeit with some automated setup.

comment iTunes 12 Won't Play MP4 Files That Work in Quicktime Player
Turns out the issue has something to do with certain audio formats, specifically AC3 and DTS audio in .mp4 files; Quicktime Player will play them, but iTunes won't (or rather, it tries to and fails). Re-encoding the audio into AAC fixes the problem, but it doesn't explain why one works and the other doesn't. Anyway, not sure if I should update that as the answer, or if I should close the issue instead.
