re the wrong max depth: In the plot of the dive profile, is there anything weird (anything that goes to 50+m)? I don’t know if subsurface computes that max depth (in that case we have to fix something) or takes it from libdivecomputer.

What if the error is marginal varying only by a small percentage but the reading shows 32mtr instead of 30. The diver is comatose or in a chamber or dead and the DC isnt physically handed over, but the dive data is exported and emailed to the DAN or an insurance company. This will lead to a problem with the insurance claim as the diver has exceeded his certified depth, and so it is still important IMHO to get to the bottom (no pun intended) of this.
You don’t want to go in that direction, this is wrong from many points of view. Jef pointed out the legalese from (L)GPL. Plus even insurance companies will have a hard time arguing that the violation of the “certification depth” (given by how ill defined that is) by a small fraction had any influence on the outcome of a dive. Seriously, stop diving if you worry too much about legal battles with insurance companies or liability.
