One example: Place the cursor in the middle of a line inside a paragraph 
of text.  Press the up or down arrow and the cursor moves to beginning 
or end of the next line, not to the same position in the line as is 
expected.  I don't remember all the problems off the top of my head, but 
that's the sort of thing I'm seeing when things work.  The crashes I 
can't repeat on demand.  Though I've noticed that it's usually when I'm 
replying to people and often will happen twice when working on the same 
reply.  So maybe it's something with the quoting functionality.

If I'm the only one seeing problems, then my point is moot.  Otherwise, 
I hope you're wrong about the general sentiment being that a package 
should be kept even if it's unstable (which is why I said "if nothing 
can be done"... I didn't mean it should be rolled back tomorrow or
