Are the connections really dirty at the voltage regulator? These tend to get corrosion on them and cause weird charging system issues. Also make sure the ground is good on the regulator.

If you have one where the voltage regulator is located inside (integral part of) the computer...I believe you know that already.... Then you will have the symptoms you have posted. There is a "work around" for that involving the use an an older style regulator but I can't remember the exact wiring hookup. Best, just get another computer from a scrapyard.
Likely the computer is not getting sufficient voltage and that's why engine performance is off a bit. After installing the computer, fully charge the battery before starting it to avoid overloading the charging system and causing it to fail again.

Usually this happens when you have a drain on the battery somewhere. i would check the car over really good to make sure there is nothing running after you shut it off. Listen to see if you can hear the fuel pump running or anything that may draw on the battery. This kind of drain is extremely difficult to trace.
