I noticed that listtransactions (and the GUIs) omit the address coins are generated to. For the random self-generated address, that makes sense, but normal addresses should really be shown... I suspect this is the reason behind MyBitcoin and other similar interfaces not working correctly with generated coins.

Since right now the interface shows a single "generate" entry for a block, no matter how many different addresses might be used to collect the reward, this is not simply a matter of adding a field.

Agreed. Generation transactions could be made to work more like normal incoming transactions in the GUI/listtransactions.

I don't see why not.

This might also be relevant in this context: ("Allow generations to be assigned to accounts")

The reason that Instawallet does not work with generated coins is, that bitcoind does not credit generated coins to the account, that the address belongs to. Sipa wrote up a patch for that, but I haven't tested it yet.
