I will do a bug report to Apple. It has worked before. I have no intention 
of ever using the iCloud system for anything important. I tried it at the 
beginning with my address book and ended up with double entries for 
everything, with anything updated occurring differently but with no 
information as to which was the latest version. This was simply solved by no 
longer using iCloud. If nothing but music is going to be synced when I click 
the sync button in iTunes there will be no point, for me, of having an 
iPhone any more.
It will then have all the shortcomings (for me) of Android, but be dearer.
I have just ordered a new Macbook pro, if it is going to be the same and 
only comes with Mavericks I need to cancel soon!
