Probably right, there. I also wonder if the problems are more
likely to affect (be spotted by) power users rather than us civilians?
I installed 9.10b on a seven-year-old Toshiba satellite 32-bit and a
one-year-old Dell 64-bit. The Toshiba was an on-line upgrade from
9.04, the Dell a clean install from 9.04. Both machines haven't skipped
a beat.

The gremlins are fickle as they flit about within the Ubuntu
crowd!  ;-)
