Yes, use M-x toggle-proof-prettyprinting to change it from the default.
If you want to change the default, you can add the line
 (pvs-send "(setq *save-proofs-pretty* nil)")
to your ~/.pvsemacs file.

Yes, (expand "x" :assert? none) will expand x without simplification.
(help expand) gives more information.

It is possibly due to simplification, though it's hard to say without more
information.  Why don't you go ahead and send the dump file (or tell me
where to pick it up) and I'll take a look.
