enotif not sent in the language of the recipient
This is admittedly a design flaw and will be repaired in forthcoming versions.
when enabling disabled enotifs in user preferences: clear flags manually on your watchlist (one click)
When a user enables one of the basic enotif mail option (enotif for page changes; enotif for user_talk page changes), the eventually existing notification flags are not cleared automatically. This means essentially, that the user does not receive "further" mails - because the flags say, that he "already got an enotif". But this wasn't sent, because the former status was "do not send mails".
Solution: go to your watchlist page and click the button to one-click-clear all notification flags.

An email is sent out mistakenly, when - no changes were done - user clicks "Show Preview" - user clicks "Save" (instead of Cancel)
