~shrug~ It isn't clear to me what's going on. Multiple people
reporting various problems. According to some, even MSFT isn't sure
what's going on. I know in the past certain MSFT patches have gotten
a reputation for being sources of trouble, leading to people not
wanting to install them. Microsoft pulled the entire Win XP Service
Pack 3 update for a week and a half due to a bug in one of their
accounting software packages. Who knows what will happen this time
around? Not me -- my crystal ball is in the shop. I just figured I'd
mention it. You're free to interpret it however you like.
