So, is the bowl vent line capped off or open to the atmosphere? If it is
capped off, or worse yet, linked to the carb purge port, you may get strange
problems like dying at idle or inability to set the mixture properly.

Yup. Besides the anti-runon valve as Dave mentioned, any gasoline vapor
from the float bowl with the engine idling or stopped is routed to the
carbon canister (originally). Then when you open the throttle, the vent is
routed to the air filter instead, to ensure that there is no pressure
differential (which would upset the mixture).
