I'm glad you find it as useful as I have.  However your experience is
mirroring mine in that the FR software "seems" to work but often (and
especially after a crash) it may take a few reboots to work smoothly.  I
know software is supposed to be deterministic and do the same operations
everytime, but from the outside looking in, the FR has a mind of its
own :)

I suspect cleaning of tmp files, and possibly badblocks or corrupted
file system are the causes - gets fixed up during reboot - sometimes see
the messages during bootup.  So I always do at least 3 reboots before
saying a particular upgrade isn't working - as mad as it sounds, it
sometimes helps!

I am using shr-u from early June with a 2.6.28 kernel last updated
before the updates stopped being pushed, and since I have stopped trying
to chase the updates, its been very usable (and still has an occasional
disastrous crash though :)
