I haven't found any problems myself, but the two machines I have it
installed on are only ever up for a few hours at a time, and both
have plenty of memory.

The most noticeable bug is "Couldn't get a free page....." coming up
in reproduceable conditions on machines with less memory, although it
was present in earlier versions but not as bad.

There are also various problems with the networking code, including a
few memory leaks.

Some of these have probably been fixed to some extent by the patches
applied to the Debian source for 2.0.30.
