E-Jets v3 - Control Issues

You sure you were in LOC not Vnav and FLCH?

Absolutely. LOC was already active, GS was armed. Nav source was V/L. It also could not be FLCH, because ALT was set to 1200' and I caught the plane at around 700' when I first heared "glideslope".

slowed to approach speed (Vref+5) before catching the GS. As soon as I reached that speed the plane started its descent and I got lots of "glideslope" aural warnings

Reads like your speed is to slow.  Try increasing vapp and test.

This early descent is just one issue, but the topic is about control problems. What is the best joystick setup for Saitek wheel? For other (yoke-driven) planes I use the wheel with zero null zone and maximal sensitivity. I used E-Jets v2 with zero null zone and about 80% sensitivity. However, V3 behaves as it would have  very large null zone on his own, and then  sensitivity is too high: small yoke movement, nothing, a little bit more, and the plane starts to bank or pitch very quickly. It is like flying the plane with switches. With other planes I have no such problem, not even with V2.

I used this one, but did not upgrade yet to 1.0.2. Mine is 1.0.0. My speed was Vref+5 exactly. I did not get stall warning or stick shaker.

I'll write this again ... Increase your vapp and see what happens.

maximal sensitivity

Does that controller adjustment until allow for changing the sensitivity?  I know FSUIPC allows that ... even allowing custom settings for individual planes.
