I had a machine here running 1.2.10 for 150 days uptime. Sure
hurt to reboot it, but it needed hardware upgrades.

I wonder if that kind of reliablility will be seen again before 1.4.8 or so..

Of course this machine was in constant use as a firewalled syslog
repository, and ps showed syslogd at 90+% of cpu
constantly... whereas after rebooting (same kernel) it calmed
down considerably, fluctuating between 3 and 50% .... so 1.2.10
isn't exactly flawless...
