I came to the same conclusion that a reinstall was the way to go about two
weeks ago after suffering with an unstable system since upgrading from 9.04
to 9.10 in October. Everything runs much better now, though not 100% error
free (occasional frontend hangs on 2/3 of my machines, but rare enough that
I can live with it) Is .23 still expected to be out in a few months?
