My first introduction to LaTeX was in 1997, and I've never looked back!

comment Examining the current value of a beamertemplate
\setbeamertemplate{<element>}{<template>} creates \csname beamer@@tmpl@<element>\endcsname to be <template>. So, you could examine \makeatletter\expandafter\show\csname beamer@@tmpl@<element>\endcsname\makeatother. Is that what you're referring to?

Hmmm, this could be anything. In order to answer your question, it would be best if we can reproduce it. Can we do that with this information?

comment ToC content spacing and related formatting
@Ekosan: That should not make any difference. I don't know how to solve your issue since I can't replicate it.
comment ToC content spacing and related formatting
@Ekosan: Nothing in the .aux indicate that spaces are added to to the ToC. If you can identify the chapters around which it happens, examine their individual .aux files.
