Crap.  Without providing details about *HOW* the release isn't stable,
it isn't precice enough.  I run FreeBSD-stable 3.1 every single day
and have had no problems with instability that would cause a reboot
every 24 hours.

Without knowing exactly what the problem is, any attempts at finding a
solution is just pissing in the wind.  A vauge report that things are
instable is not enough to reproduce squat, nor is it enough to know
what the instability is.  Hell, for all I know, he could be running
his system by a Van der Graaf generator which is causing the
instability.
