Well, yes, I also announced my 2.0.17 system running stable, after one
day. Bad. I was to quick. It's still running, sure, but the relatively
important (for my setup) ISDN subsystem again stopped working. No I
tried to get some more work on my cron, regularly down-ing all isdn
interfaces and reloading the module, 'cause I'm (as main sysadm) going
to take a two week vacation next week. Guess I'll keep my fingers
crossed and tell nobody my phone number ... :-)
