That was quite detailed analysis so I tried to replicate it.

This is the input file (I only added a first blank line and a dummy heading):

#+BEGIN: columnview :hlines 1 :vlines t :id "09.0001-ESCH"  :skip-empty-rows t

|   | * Escopo Horas       |       230 | 1640 |          |
|   | ** Ger�ncia          |        10 |      |          |

|   | ** Configura��o      |       100 |      |          |
|   | ** Comis. & Start up |        50 |      |          |

#+END:
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I did a C-c C-e L to export to tex and following is what I got:

It does not exhibit any of the three issues you listed.  I have no clue why it
works for me so I checked my latex export related settings but there's nothing
interesting there.  Now I know none of this helps you but thought I would add
a data point.  May be someone else can try too?
