It doesn't sound like you are flashing all 3ware cards you have in
production every time new firmware release it out. It doesn't sound either
like you had fatal failure of production box because of bug in 3ware
firmware. Correct me if I'm wrong, otherwise I see you on the same page
with me: i.e. not flashing new firmware as a part of "routine update" of
production machine (together with system/software updates).
