  ~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.
