I'm thinking this is to do with the changes made to those function calls that were causing errors?

IMHO, more relative to FIND statements changing due to the upgrade of phpBB, and some other logical changes place to place, that makes the mods much more difficult to install, at least as-is.

Exactly. As you can see from looking at the Code Changes, there were a LOT of minor changes to the code which can throw off FINDs, in some cases where the only change was adding a space! PARTICULARLY MODs that deal with sessions will be highly affected, as 2.0.18 uses a brand new sessions system backported from Olympus.

Yeah, that happens, the MOD template has had some changes (but nothing too major) and coding standards have moved on quite a bit over the past few months.

Updating mods that are older than lets say march can be tricky :)
