I have a build of 1.6Q (i386) from cvs source dated April 5th. It's
been running continuously since then, with a couple of reboots thrown
in just to see how they would go. (This release is available here: if anyone thinks it might be
of use.)

Also, I must confess that I have had a hard time determining exactly
what kinds of situations people are running afoul of; can someone boil
it all down for me: what's the problemo here? Is it just with the new
fsck binaries (which I have NOT run! <g>), or is it only with mounts
of ext2 filesystems, or whut?
