Subject: kernel compilation using gcc 3.2.2 - supposed to work?

I've just compiled a stock NetBSD 1.6 - GENERIC kernel using gcc 3.2.2.
After fixing three minor problems compilation succeeds. The kernel seems
to work and seems to be stable (no thorough testing though, just running
Mozilla and typing this mail).
As I've heard rumours about problems I'm not entirely sure whether to trust
this kernel.
Is it prudent to revert to 2.95.2 for kernel compilation, or should 
3.2.2 be fine?

regards, Theo.
