comment It doesn't hyphenate words ending with “—”
A kern is never a line break point, unless it is followed by glue, so you get hyphenation in the preceding word, but the last fragment is not separated by the dash. I added the test for a space; it's not complete, because only an explicit space token allows a line break after the dash (not \quad, for instance). This test is necessary for adding a \nobreak in case a character directly follows. The fact that even —\nobreak, can't inhibit the break is a problem also in standard TeX (with ---,).

comment mhchem macro in subscript
Not completely the same, but basically so. I think I have already explained the behavior somewhere, and I'm trying to find it.

comment mhchem macro in subscript
To explain what happens, the expansion of \text starts with {, which is then used for the subscript.

comment mhchem macro in subscript
The fact that \text works without the braces is purely incidental and should not be relied upon. See tex.stackexchange.com/a/160538/4427

Sorry, but if I copy from the question I have no problem. Can you make a small example available somewhere?

The textcomp package is installed along with the base LaTeX distribution, it has no separate MiKTeX package.

@SydKerckhove This requires a new question. But probably you just have to push \footnotetext outside the environment.

comment Verse and Tufte-Handout Incompatability
It's a very bad mistake for any class to load hyperref unconditionally, because the user might want to load other packages and this will, in many cases, create incompatibilities, as hyperref needs to be called last (with a few exceptions).
