Yeah, that's been needed for ages. A random thing I found just now is that if you crouch when you're on a ladder, you slide down. Is that new or has it been there for ages?
I don't think you even have to crouch. Just step onto the ladder, hug the wall and slide down. Its how I've gotten up and down my mineshaft since the beginning.
Of course if you're feeling cocky and have a long ladder, you can just freefall then grab the ladder partway down. I make it down safely. Usually.
Ben - I think I managed to fix the bed problem. Just get rid of any nearby dirtblocks.
