Is there a list anywhere of the different behaviour of SQL Express?

It's things like the Auto Close setting defaulting to on whatever you choose in the Model database.
Is this a one off or are there lots of these?

There are three (3) versions of SQL Express
Express
Express with Advanced Services
Express with Tools

For an idea of exactly what each version's features go here

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

i can think of only a couple offthe top of my head:

TCP/IP / remote connections are not enabled by default.
no Dedicated Admin Connection is available by default.

depending on the version of installed, you might not have SSMS.
it's really easy to not add yourself as an administrator during instalation + leave sa account disabled, so you don't have access after installation.

hopefully others will chime in as well.
