But you always can replace the glyphs of the Water and Earth by ZET's font editor (Alt+F2 key, symbols #20 and #22).

Regarding the fixed stars, I am confused. The locations are in the sidereal constellations, for instance Algol at 26 Taurus.Press "Setup" button, select "General setup" and find "Precession" box. Default setting is: "Calculate when set date". It means that a precession for stars calculates only when you press "Execute" button in "Birth Data" window. When you change a time dynamically - it does not calculated. Try other settings. And read manual about it.

Yes, it seems that the Swisseph values are outdated, because we still use extrapolated values taken from the Astronomical Almanach 1997. And the values from ftp://maia.usno.navy.mil/ser7/deltat.data are correct. Unfortunately, delta t cannot be known exactly ahead, but has to be calculated every year from new measurements. Thank you for the clue! We ought to adjust delta t every year, but we have forgotten it.
