In some situations snapping a chalk line
and band sawing to it makes sense.

I use the jointer exactly as you ve described
when correcting concave edges.

I do the same as Loren described. Sometimes boards have internal stresses that only get released after you start cutting them up. So this is not unusual what you are seeing. I believe lifting and re-jointing the first (or last) part of the boards edge is safe as long as you are careful.
