This is a normal Factory inconsistency which will probably disappear
with the next sync, but others will follow. ;-)

Same here. I didn't report it because it is too obvious.

It's probably caused by GNOME being a mix of three versions: 2.12, 2.14,

You can report that, but since it's the consequence of the obvious c),
it's probably not necessary.

That was the same here (ipw2200), but it suddenly disappeared. Try to
update as many packages as possible.

Those which are not already reported, yes.

Not being able to play WMV is not a bug; the gstreamer packages in
Factory don't contain the ffmpeg plugin for legal reasons, which would
be needed to play WMV.

The GNOME problems will probably disappear anyway when GNOME is fully
updated to version 2.16.
