Default Theoretical problem for RNA-Seq Mapping

I have been looking at some of my human RNA-Seq data and started to notice some strange things, which brings up some potentially difficult questions. For example do aligners (e.g. tophat) take into account the probability of incorrectly mapping a given 35-bp single end given all the possible derivatives of (0,1,2) mismatches in a given genome? For example, AGG...GCT may be in the genome 100 times more than AAA...AAA? More importantly, given the random placement of reads mapping identically or pseudo-indentically, should we also consider for a given sequence the probability of incorrectly mapping the sequence because there may be 4 places in the genome with ACTG..., but 400 with ATTG... (1bp mismatch) and 4000 with ATTT... (2bp mismatch)?
