Subject:      Re: Is 6.11 with Xwindows buggy ?

We've been using it at the office for about a month, and its been both faster and more stable than 6.09.

We run on HP/UX 9.04 on a T500/4-way, with ASK/Ingres. The memory "leak" with Ingres has also been cleared up with this release as well. We couldn't be happier with 6.11!
