As far as I know, the problems have not been fixed. I've turned off
ipfilter on my 2.0beta machine -- and had to turn off several services
I'd rather were on -- while waiting for a statement that the
problem has been fixed. I've held off upgrading other machines from
1.6K to 2.0beta until this is cleared up.
