Flashlight glows at the tip even when turned off. This not a beam of light like it emits during use, but just the top of it glowing all the time.

look at a flashlight on the ground or if someone is holding it while it is turned off.
I would like to also add that when your inside a building the fact that the flashlight does not light up a good chunk of the room like it would if you were in RL really is depressing. Having a "spotlight" basically that will disapear completely on you if you are looking at the wrong angle is extremely frustrating. Especially since we are forced to play at night more often now.
Adding to this, it would be nice if the torch had a bright flare around the front when turned on at night, so that you could get somewhat blinded when somebody shined it on you.
A visible beam would also look awesome, especially if a foggy or rainy night: http://www.sentex.net/~mwandel/photo/flashlight-beam.jpg
Mine works fine, I can switch off and on and it works like it should. One problem there is personally, that "light" button which is "L" for me, it doesn't work, I have to switch it off either with command bringing on screen, or manually go to inventory and right mouse button to switch off.
