You may have problems if you check-out and compile the code or install
the latest development (alpha or non-stable, early rc) versions. I
would recommend 18.104.22.168 as the latest stable version.
The only support for 389 is the web site wiki, this list and bugzilla,
the developers in general are available and very reactive, it happened
