After Winter patch - game breaking bug in Thief startup "quest"

I started a brand new game this morning and I noticed two things about the thief startup quest:

1) The "hand" icon to pickpocket the guy with the key is gone.  I couldnt figure out how to pickpocket him so i skipped it and picked the lock on the door instead

2) After picking the lock on the door, I turned off "caution" and walked inside the door.   One lone guard "aggroed" on me and I quickly turned on "caution" again and walked away.  The guard stood in the doorway.   Once I got the item from the chest that starts the confrontation with the loan shark, all of the guards aggroed in the fight.  Killed them all except one, he/she is apparently outside of the castle walls and cannot be reached.  The game cannot progress, you are stuck in combat forever.

Similar bug as #2 above.

For the thief startup quest at the final confrontation, my thief was detected at the window (I assume) and aggro'ed a guard. With no battle, the quest failed and game over. 

After a Reload from last save (which did recover all progress) I was able to complete the quest by killing the lone shark with a bow shot from the window.

Similar problem in Thief Tutorial quest. Get the gem out of the chest. Game goes to cutscene of Liam and Loan Shark, the thief has been placed, out of stealth, on the window ledge. Technically, the quest log says, "Escape the Fort", with the details of retrace your steps until you are out of the fort. 1) I have alternately killed the Loan Shark from the window, or snuck down and behind him for a backstab. a) If I kill him, the game presents the battle "Victory" marquee, but Liam is unresponsive, and I can sneak all the way out of the fort and back to the starting location, and nothing happen. 2) I have snuck by him without attacking, all the way out of the fort, and nothing happens. 3) I have gone back to the beginning of the quest and snuck all the way back in, and opened the door with both the quartermaster's key and the lock pick - no difference - still bugs after the Loanshark cutscene. Can't complete it, so can't get back to the tavern and continue playing. Most irritating.

Same thing

1) The "hand" icon to pickpocket the guy with the key is gone.  I couldnt figure out how to pickpocket him so i skipped it and picked the lock on the door instead 

Same thing and I have sleight-of-hand proficiency.
