In standard tuning EADGBE the distance from E to A is a perfect 4th and from A to D and D to G. Exept from G to B . If you tune B to C it would be a perfect fourth, then tune high E to F to make them a perfect fourths apart. Has anyone else seen this and is it a flaw?

yea, they just make the higest strings B and E instead of C and F so that you can cover an two octaves when when working horizontally up the fretboard. most of the scales, especially pentatonics, are based on this two octave tuning.
This is my signature. There are many like it but this one is MINE.

stanley jordan tunes in all fourths

but in all honesty standard tuning is standard because it's so versatile.

Fourths tuning is one of the pre-programmed tunings in Powertab, so it must be somewhat common for some kind of music.

But, yeah, standard tuning is good. You can finger common chords easily and the lowest and highest strings are the same note.
