i note that when i look at the elevation chart in the track log it is always some where between 1 and 2 km's shorter then the total track log indicated on the trip computer?

You raise a good question about whether or not elevation changes are factored in to the estimated distance. It would be easy enough for the unit to do with a Garmin map containing a DEM. Barometer elevation readings are just too jumpy to be meaningfull over a long-term calculation.

1. What happens to all the distances associated with all the "random" points logged while stationary? Like during a lunch break on a hike?
2. How do you set a logging interval of "less than one second"?

You're comment that it estimates where it thinks you are going to be is incorrect it only tries to find out where it is at; there is no predictive factor.
Try loading your track to Connect.Garmin to get a good read of the file (or BaseCamp with topo does pretty good)
