Objects snap to guide and guides snap to selection box, no problem there. I can't figure out how to snap guides to an object/curve that's inside of a selection box (subtracted shape within a shape).

It's not a bug - we just don't do snapping to geometry (yet).  We only snap to curve bounds.  So, when you combine geometry, snapping will then only apply to the bounds of the resulting item.  This means it is currently not possible to snap to geometric elements inside of a single curve object.
