 Hi Paolo,

 I would say 1) and 3) are just missing features. The client that paid 
 for the overview map feature did not request what you want. They just 
 had the overview map at full extent (that is what maybe 90% of users are 
 doing) and did not want to zoom in and auto-center. 2) may be a bug. 
 Could you open a bug request?

 regarding 3) will only work for polygon features - but Atlas also works 
 with lines or points. So it needs special casing for polygons. A missing 
 feature that you can ask Oslandia to implement. You will have to specify 
 if you want this feature on the main map or the overview map or both.
