Oddly enough, the CVS code is much more stable than the 1.4 release. At 
least on i386 Linux, *BSD, HP-UX and Tru64. I don't know about solaris.

Yes, but with a moderate amount of fixes. I grew tired of juggling an 
ever-growing set of patches at my end and forked the code. Most of it is 
still the same, but I've chopped out a couple of bugs and added some 
features (an experimental framework for running commands, among other 
things). I'll put it up for download if you're interested.
