I can tell you this: my LAN uses IP masquerading.  IP masq is broken
horribly in 2.0.30.  If I were not keeping up with the news on this, I
would blindly install 2.0.30 and proceed to bring down my LAN, thus
cutting my off from the Internet for everything.

I have heard that there are various other networking bugs as well, no
confirmation, though.
