Noted thanks Knc1
I should most probably back-off from such a positive statement as the one I made.

Disclaimer: It ***should*** have been fixed by recent changes to the VFS code.
But those folks at kernel.org have been known to replace a single bug with a nest of insect eggs.
In that project's defense: the Linux kernel is a BIG program.

But things have improved since the 90's.
There once was a time when you where lucky to get the thing to compile, let alone run.
Code:
root@Microknoppix:~# uptime
 08:32:53 up 101 days, 17:04,  5 users,  load average: 0.00, 0.02, 0.05
root@Microknoppix:~# uname -a
Linux Microknoppix 3.0.4 #12 SMP PREEMPT Thu Sep 8 05:27:05 CEST 2011 i686 GNU/Linux
But that short uptime is not the kernel's fault, I had to manually shut down that machine due to circumstances beyound its control (or mine). It would be fair to add 47 days to that report.
