I see. This is bad news then.

After re-reading the mail archive it appears that I indeed said so in
one of the messages, but that's probably a typo -- 7.1 crashes more
frequently (in fact, pretty much always), while 7.2 is better. At
least this is how I recall it.

I'll try to bisect the problem, but it'll take a while. I'll report my
findings in a week or so.
