Agreed. Totally... Right now, my latest run has been up almost
12 hours. Not enough to judge, but I have not heard anyone say that this
has occured with an SMP build. That's what I'm running right now and
all is stable. But the last failure occurred after 22 hours running, so
this is not nearly long enough by half to even guess...

I'm really suspicious about that gcc seg fault in 2.1.127pre3 sched.c,
because I never heard anyone say what FIXED it. It was just "magically"
fixed in 2.1.127pre7 (didn't have a chance to test anything in between).
