Gallery / Media Library "Save all Changes" doesn't save certain changes.

Reporting this for Version 2.6.2 (no drop down for that version)
I've searched both Trac and the Codex forum for this and haven't seen anything specific to this perceived bug.
When using the Add Media: Image option, the resulting Media loader doesn't save certain changes that are made to the uploaded images.
For example, after uploading a single image, I can click the Gallery or Media Library tabs and see my uploaded file.
If I change the caption or description of that file and click "Save all Changes", those changes are saved.
If I try to change the Link attribute, by either using one of the link presets or try to put in my own link and click "Save all Changes", the link always reverts back to the attachment link when I view that image again.
If I click a certain image size and alignment and click "Save all Changes" those options are not saved.
If I change the link, alignment and size options and then use "Insert Into Post", they work fine for that insert, but the options settings are not retained.
These settings should be retained when "Save all Changes" is clicked.
One of the key challenges with this, is if you would like to use the gallery shortcode and have the images link to a page other than the default upload page, it is impossible given the current implementation.
Ideally, this would be changed to allow the link to be saved by image, so that the user specified link works regardless of if the image is inserted into the post or shown in the Gallery.
Also, the size and alignment preferences should be saved, or at least better described so that the user is aware they only apply to that one "Insert" operation.
