Nexus is richer and we only parse the trees from that format. Since the format is a newick tree embedded within it relies on the same code in the newick parser.
Knowing what you want to do would more likely lead to better answer. As for bugs - you can search the redmine big tracker to see whether they are reported issues that are unresolved and you can examine the tests in the t directory to see what compliance is tested.
