(sorry for the delay...just catching up on e-mail after an outage last week)

daedalus has had only 2 core dumps in about 10 days.  One was a mmap cleanup
issue which Cliff has a promising looking fix for in 2.0.36.  

The other is a sendfile assert that we've seen intermittently for a long time. 
Jeff thinks the FreeBSD kernel is giving us a return value of 0 with no bytes
sent.  I think we might be passing a length or an offset that's too big, perhaps
when the site is updated after we stat() the file.  I plan to write traps to
test both theories.

So I don't know of any reason why 2.0.36 won't be stable.
