The first bug probably is just leftover from level 24 being silly.  If you can reproduce the bug after starting level 25 directly without going through level 24 make sure to let me know.

The second bug is with the level editor, not Portal.  Portal has a certain max number of objects it can support, and the editor doesn't respect this value.  There are plenty of ways using the editor to make the game messed up or crash though, so my best answer for right now is to not do that :P

There are a large number of things that you can do to create a buggy level, and I am already near the execution limit in terms of size.  Until I get a large amount of free time to optimize the editor significantly, there really isn't much I can do.  I definitely don't want to make it an app, as that would be wasting 8K of extra space.

That level 24 glitch is actually pretty bad. I did it again, and upon exiting portal, I got some weird symbols on the screen, and couldn’t use it or even turn it off. I took all the batteries out, put them in again, and it still was frozen.
Anyway, I left the batteries out while I was at school today and it worked again, but that glitch is pretty bad.

Yeah that's the main glitch he has to work out of it... Beside that glitch, there are only a few non-bothering glitches so i guess he's mainly focussing on removing the lvl 24 glitch (maybe just place a roof on it builderboy? So they can't shoot out of the level?)
None of my posts are meant offending... I you feel hurt by one of my posts, tell me ... So i can appoligise me and/or explain why i posted it

If he puts a roof over it, that will make the level super easy XD (I still haven't gotten past it o.o)

New glitch, that is sort of seriousish; sometimes upon starting the level you can hit downleft portal and a portal will appear on the left side of the block you're standing on, facing the edge of the screen. Warping into this portal wraps you into the rightmost column of the level, allowing you to just skip to the next level hehe. At work atm so no screenie, but it's easy to duplicate. Try it on level 19. It's probably caused by the portal code note bothering to check for shooting offscreen or something (?)

I got more now random screens turning off and entering random levels then, but when exiting it didn't crash at all.

I don’t know if anyone else found this, but at the end of most levels, if you shoot up, you get a glitch similar to the level 24 glitch, except what happens after it is pretty cool. I think it displays all the code for game, but it looks like that matrix thing you get after clearing a bunch of numbers, but with less work and for much longer.

Don't worry, it's not the code for the game :P It's probably just converting a bunch of junk data to tokens.
