Lost 12k clicks when exiting and reloading buggy client

I've used whatpulse 1.x faithfully for over two years, now. Last week, I finally decided to update to the newest client. I'm starting to regret that decision. Here are the problems that have occurred:

1. Yesterday, when it automatically pulsed at 7am, it screwed up my total keycount and total clickcount. My keycount went from 9.5 million to approximately 10.5 million, and my clickcount went from 4.6 million to the exact same number (approx. 10.5 million). I tried pulsing and editing the geek window's layout, and that didn't fix the problem. Ultimately, "refresh status" in the account information tab of the whatpulse settings window did the trick. However, I've noticed that these stats only update periodically. In the old version, I could see my totals update on the fly, as I typed. I'm concerned that I'll miss my 9,999,999 and 10,000,000 key counts (for a screenshot), which I am quite looking forward to.

2. Today, whatpulse missed its automatic 7am pulse, and subsequently refused to pulse when I tried manually. I tried everything I could find mentioned on the forum, and nothing worked. No error messages (even after checking that automatic popups were not suppressed); just no response. Eventually, I exited whatpulse and reopened it. After exiting and reopening the client, it pulsed. However, a third problem occurred.

3. Before I had quit the whatpulse client, I was sitting at approximately 17,500 clicks. After quitting and reloading the client, it stated only 5,500 clicks, so it randomly lost about 12,000 clicks. I checked whether these 12k clicks were already pulsed somehow, and they were not.

Losing keys and clicks is important to me, because I'm a long-time RSI sufferer using whatpulse to track my computer usage so that (1) I can prevent injury to my wrists by stopping after an appropriate amount of usage, and (2) I can track the progress of my affliction over time to see what average level of activity I've been able to maintain. I noticed 12k clicks missing this time, but I might not notice in future.
