Lets move fast on this. I want to slip the stable tag ASAP and I
(was) only waiting on Jeff's tcp panic fix to be committed before
doing it. I was going to address the libc_r issue with Opera
blocking for long periods of time by slipping it again after that is
found and fix.
(Just) Opera? Does that mean that (the perhaps more widely used)
been fixed already? If not, no sweat ....
