Windows 10 Mobile Build 10512 on a Lumia 1520: Still not right

I’ve been using Windows 10 ever since it first became available (so sometime in 2014), even on my main development machine, and without any significant issues along the way.

Which makes it all the more surprising that Windows 10 Mobile is such a freakin’ trainwreck.

Ever hopeful that the build quality will get better, not worse, I have installed the latest build on my Lumia 1520, and it still can’t display the start screen properly.  In the previous build, you could get it to show up.  It might disappear from time to time, but generally, you could get it.  So far, I’ve yet to see it with this build, and the workaround to getting apps to run (launch Cortana and search for an app by name, launch from there) does not consistently work either.

And looky here, in the ‘known issues’ list:

Some phones with a large number of tiles pinned to the Start screen may get stuck in a state where the device shows “Loading…”; the device will need to be reset or rolled back to Windows Phone 8.1

What do they consider a large number of tiles?  4?

And, in the 20 minutes I’ve used it, it still doesn’t handle music right.
