I am running (occasionaly) Opera 9.10 on -current (also i386)
generally OK. It seems higher load on Opera renders my wpi0 wireless
inoperative (pun intended...) , but when I use ral0 it never fails (I
think it is some regression in wpi, as it happens with bittorrent as
well, but am not sure).

I don't think the error messages for the two libraries have anything
to do with your problem, as I have never bothered to get rid of them -
they don't cause trouble.

I do get way too many open files with it, so I have to use 'unlimit'
before starting it.

Not really, although recently I lost all external connection
capability from Java programs (sun-jre15). This recently sorted itself
out without me doing anything (well, I think I upgraded the package,
but didn't check at the time if this was repaired). Both
Linix-compatibilty programs, so there may have been something.

I haven't ran any released version for quite some time, so I can't say
about 3.01.
