For some reason no matter what options I fiddle with, I cannot get SheetCam to loop inside corners... any thoughts? (I'm assuming this was an added feature due to the previous replies on this thread)

This is only in the development version. Dev gets the new toys as they are developed. Stable only gets them once they have been thoroughly tested and there is a new major release (V7.x).
Look for the 'overcut internal corners' option.

It seems this feature activates sometimes on small arcs too. I think it wold be better if it happens only if there is a corner on the actual drawing.

If you look at the tool path slight errors in the positioning of the arcs on the outline mean that the tool paths don't form perfect tangential arcs. You are ending up with corners so SheetCam adds the overcut. You should be able to dial that out by increasing the angle threshold.
