did you reset the phone, maybe it will not change anything but it remains a solution.Ok, so I think it is the same update file as I suspected - with the version name and release date being the same.
First impression: the gesture bug is still present After each reboot the app drawer arrow jumps to the top of the screen, which is resolved by checking and unchecking "hide full screen indicator", but then the bottom icons move higher - that is the new layout I guess, because of the full screen indicator.

The screen itself seem brighter again, I hope it's not just placebo effect.
I'll report if I see normal behaviour of the auto brightness setting.
