@CharlesMorisset Almost all of my questions are from real situations which I encountered. One or two are based on my wife's current graduate school experience. I can definitely post how I handled the situations, but keep in mind that I was as clueless a grad student as the next guy.
Maybe I'll post the solutions as comments, or I'll post them here for those interested in seeing them. Posting them here may draw some activity to chat :)

@eykanal Yes, that would be good to have here or as comment how you dealt with the situations. For instance, I'm thinking about the one where you advisor asked you to work on another research project: did you do it? If so, did you have problems? Did you actually publish the paper? Did it impact on your main grant?
I've never been myself in the exact situation, but I can imagine that some students will, and it would be good for them to have the answer "I've been there, and in the end I regret/don't regret" ...
