@Sigur: Hence my reference to "due to the positioning of the contents". Of course, adjustments are possible for an even number of items.

comment hyperref link expanded by MakeUpperCase breaks
Tell us a little more about your usage of the description environment. Do you always have a \hyperref in there? Also, why not just use \hyperref[..]{FIRST CHAPTER}? How extensive is this usage? Don't try to build a castle when all you need is a doll house.

comment Redefine optional argument of \item in enumitem
@steven_nevets: xparse provides an easy-to-use interface for checking the use/existence of optional arguments. There are pure LaTeX2e equivalents, but xparse is the future... :)

comment Pagenumbering on every “first chapter” page
See header and footer of the first page of every chapter. You may be requiring \let\ps@plain\ps@headings. There are a number of other posts similar to this on the site. They're just mixed in with bizarre titles, and not always easy to find.
