Here's my list, all of which was corrected by going back to Hardy:

1) session saving is broken in GNOME
Ubuntu issue:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-session/+bug/249373
GNOME issue: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=552387

2) Compiz crashed repeatedly on my main machine, each time requiring me
not only to re-enable it, but to re-enter all my settings as well (card:
GeForce 8400 GS).

3) Ibex had no end of trouble recognizing which CD drive was which, and
often told me I didn't have permission to eject the disc.

4) On my test box, Ibex doesn't recognize the fact that there's a floppy
drive in the box; all of the other dozen or so operating systems on that
machine do.

I'm sure there are others that I've mercifully forgotten.
