If you are using such an outdated version in your servers, you (or 
whoever is responsible) is putting the company / the clients at risk:
- there is no system in place to check for new versions (e.g. the 
versions plugin)
- there is no system in place to check for security risks (e.g. owasp 
plugin)
- old versions are slower
- old versions have bugs (e.g. the font bug that Maruan mentioned, which 
may be the cause of your troubles)
- old versions have security risks

To see what happens when where companies don't update, read this:
