And it sounds like you do a mighty fine job finding them ;)

Those items you list wouldn't be effecting us today - no ISIS and no MPLS
enabled (yet, coming shortly)...

What do you run on your MX boxes today for reference?

IIRC it was pretty darn buggy (on MX) for us... Off the top of my head I 
can think of multiple MPLS issues, an NSR issue, and an ISIS overload 
state that would sometimes kick on and refuse to clear (turned out to be 
related to having prefix-export-limit configured, even if you were 
nowhere near the limit), which made us roll back our only attempt to 
deploy that code. I'm sure there would have been more if we had kept 
looking. :)

The reality is that there are probably a good 20+ serious issues like 
these in every release, but if you run a very simple network (or in some 
cases, aren't observant enough to notice that something has broken :P) 
you may be able to skate by without running into any of them. I on the 
other hand, end up trying to collect them all. :)
