Why is Google's "My Maps" acting stupid?

Google's "My Maps" feature is doing very string things when I try to embed. Why?

I'm creating a custom map in Google Maps. Creating it works great; I can add markers, lines, and make it look perfect when in editing mode. But when I save the Map and embed it into a website, this happens:
-- All of the lines I've created do not show up when viewing the embedded version. Markers show up, but lines do not.
-- My Maps does not "remember" the zoom or focal point -- it always reverts back to the exact same point and zoom as when I created the map. This may not be a bug, but it's annoying nonetheless. So as my trip progresses across a continent, the embedded map always reverts back to the original view, even though I've moved the focal point or zoom to make up for the overlap. Grr!
I'm going on a month-long trip and I'd like to plot my course as I go and embed the map into a website so it's always up-to-date, but these bugs are really preventing me from doing that. Is there something I'm missing?
