Yes, I would recommend turning off pagers.

You are correct in saying that getRecentWeblogEntries() does not
return draft entries (not a bug) and that preview does not show all
elements of the page perfectly (I'd call that a bug).

following in the weblog template, the published look matches the look from two pagers; however,
preview does not show the new entry at all.  I'm guessing getRecentWeblogEntries() returns
only those which are published.
