[DML] Second gear fork pin questions...

About a month ago I wrote describing the problem I was having with second 
gear popping out of gear every so often.  I was told by Rob that it was 
probably a sheared pin on the second gear fork.  I have a couple more 
questions about what the fork and pin do and what the 1-2 slider gear does.

I notice that every so often when shifting from first to second that second 
gear feels stiff and clunky.  Even before I let out the clutch.  All other 
gears feel smooth.  And 2nd can sometimes feel smooth.  But I would say 50 
percent of the time second feels crunchy.  98 percent of the time it goes 
into 2nd gear with no grinding.  I can punch the gas and accelerate quickly 
through the gears with no grinding too.  When I try to get it to grind the 
only way I can do it is to go into first and very quickly and with VERY VERY 
low RPM's (sub 1500) shift to second.

My question is does the second gear fork pin only keep the car from popping 
out of gear or can it also make the shifting NOT smooth?   And is there a 
telltale sign of a 1-2 slider gear problems vs other second gear problems?
