With the new patch (notes from earlier) you can expect some inevitable issues, some of those issues have been acknowledged by Blizzard. There are no doubt there are more issues and unconfirmed changes to that game than are reported here and if you find any feel free to add them to the comments and we’ will update this post.

In Diablo 3 v1.0.3 Zombie Bears appear not to be acting as expected and are not working on stairways or narrow pathways. Blizzard confirmed the problems:
* Damage from monsters in Acts II, III, and IV in Inferno difficulty has been reduced
* Fixed a position desync bug ,aka "rubberbanding", that could happen when some movement skills (Strafe, Whirlwind, Tempest Rush) ended because the player ran out of the appropriate resource.

Unfortunately this issues won’t be fixed until patch 1.0.4 which still has no release date. 

The attack speed on Ashera’s Lock does not apply on existing items but it will effect on new spawns. The fix will be applied for existing items in patch 1.0.4.

There are reports of not gaining experience and health globes is being invisible in Diablo 3 v1.0.3. The suggested workaround is to just simply reset your password, and that solution seems to have worked for a some people.
