I still wonder why NetBSD 5.1 announcement was so much delayed; remember 
5.1_RC4 announcement was also delayed.

I'd like to see if the release fixes the video screen bugs of RC4.

On the smbfs bug, I am unlikely to use smbfs on present computer, so that bug 
would probably not affect me.

I can then decide, if video screen bugs persist, whether to burn my bridges on 
NetBSD 5.x in favor of -current.  It would also be nice to be able to read my 
Linux ext2fs partition from NetBSD.
