     I'm sure that a gene varies it's protein production rate if situated
   on different loci. Any experiences in the field of gene expression
   variation at the transcription level would be welcome, especially with
   fungi (filamentous fungi would be even better :-) )

Timberlake and Hamer discuss position effects on expression of genes in 
the SpoC1 cluster of Aspergillus nidulans in their review:

during conidiophore development in Aspergillus nidulans.  Genetic
