Yet we should be striving to maintain stability within our stable
releases. In fact, when we fail to deliver stable updates that's a
reason to investigate to see what went wrong.
Agree, still, when something breaks it's not a reason to get emotional.
Stuff occasionally breaks. There's no need for an editorial, though, when
that happens. Put all the relevant details into Bugzilla, and post a capsule
summary in users@.
Just yesterday, the recent pulseaudio update layed an egg on me. A
combination of Firefox, and a specific .wav file, causes the new pulseaudio
daemon to either lock up, or peg the CPU at 100%, and freezing Firefox. So,
I was in the same boat as the OP. I had to downgrade pulseaudio.
But instead of publishing an editorial, I found another user beating me to
the punch in Bugzilla, but a bit off the mark in the analysis of the
breakage. After amending the bug with the real facts of life, 24 hours after
posting a comment in users@, a couple of more folks joined the party,
confirming the regression, so I'm sure it'll get taken care of, sometime
