wow, so all the questions are in that same line of thoughts. I guess not being user-friendly is part of the game.
User-friendly implies simplicity, there is rather complex idea behind blockchain

I used the ethereum.org/token example contract to create a token with Ethereum Wallet. I paid the gas but it's been running for 5 days now. Is there any kind of minimum wallet balance needed above the ETH to pay the gas)? My wallet sync'd but it still shows "creating contract".
I'm trying to create a token on mainnet.

I couldn't. Google "ethereum wallet stuck creating contract" and you will see many others have the same problem.

There definitely seems to be a bug with Ethereum Wallet/Mist 0-9-0. I use the ethreum.org/token sample with no modifications. Created 100M tokens and paid the gas. A week later, it still shows "creating contract" even though it's sync'd a few times and my wallet has been debited the transaction fee. I've seen reports on the web about Ethereum Wallet getting "stuck" but never saw any resolutions to this problem.

@aphilsmith Apparently this bug is exclusively afflicting you, because the blockchain is awash in crappy contracts from people who just dump whatever half-cooked example they can find in there without first spending some time to understand things.
