Probably it's just the way the software on the Mac deals with USB power problems.
Yes, the image is of the revB layout, if you hover over the images it says revB, the overview section calls it revB multiple times.
EDIT: And after this batch there is no more revB chips left, I think, so any further batches, in April 2020, will be revB boards with revC chips installed.

...I also would advice you to get a USB Hub with switches, Plugging micro-b cables in and out is a pain.
Good to hear, I'm guessing the quantity of two in stock wasn't correct when you placed the order.

The 1V8 regulator will latch off if a fault condition occurs that it can't withstand. (stuff like dead short for too long, or reverse power). Power-cycle the Eval board to restore operation. (Ie. unplug/reconnect the usb cable).
If a less serious fault (or momentary fault) occurs, the red warning LED will light and the regulator will usually recover without power-cycle. (Stuff like overcurrent)
