If you have read the release notes (which recommend using aptitude for
the dist-upgrade AFAIR) and do the recommended steps described there, it
works without any glitches in most cases.  The small proportion of
problematic ones with some glitches tend to be desktop installs if I'm
not mistaken. 

The real problem in a production environment is checking your conffiles,
verifying that everything still works etc.
