No worries… in fact I love it when everyone can help each other with solutions.
As for the default header, depends on the theme and how it’s used. For example, Circumference uses the WP header as a banner area background, so removing that takes out the default background which the theme is built to have in place as part of the overall style (removable by the user of course). Just unfortunate though there is a bug with WP 3.9. With future theme development, I will see what kind of use the WP header will involve because with feedback from theme users, things change by constantly improving on what works and what doesn’t for everyone. The goal is to design a theme that requires no support 🙂
