2.0.33 regulary hangs on newer Intel chipsets. I installed Debian on a
friend's computer a week ago and the system would always hang within
the hour. Installing 2.0.34pre16 fixed everything.

Furthermore, 2.0.34 fixes a lot of security problems, not all of which
are in the Debian 2.0.33 package IIRC.

IMHO we really should put 2.0.34 in hamm. It's already been stress-tested
by a lot of people, so it shouldn't be a risk for us.
