    SubjectRe: 2.1.128 Oops
    Hi Alan,

    No we haven't tried the final 36 I should have said 36preX..(apologies
    :)).. I was under the impression from previous posts that SMP work was
    being put mainly into 2.1.X series and so we abandoned 2.0.X series about
    2 months ago.. in an attempt to solve the lockups. (However, having said
    that I have seen that there is a lot of effort in the 2.0 series to
    improve/stabilize perhaps our reasoning was flawed in moving to

    For our production machines would the recommendations be to return to the
    2.0.X for SMP? Was the oops I posted of any help in pointing to the
    possible source of the problem?
