I don't like the change to a web based console in the 2.x series so I'm 
still mostly using 1.x versions (and I've had some things running under 
Centos 3.x/VMware 1.x for years with no issues).  But, I hadn't seen any 
real problems with the 2.0.1 version before the glibc change in the 5.4 
upgrade.  What kind of trouble did you have?
