I'm running .24 here at BNL, on my ISP machines, and at home. They are
all general configs, with X11. So far, nothing is broken. I had some
problems with snmp on buoy.com, but that seemed to clear up all by itself.

I would strongly urge the .24 kernel if nothing serious breaks, just
for the big ping fix, having experienced it firsthand.. :(
