Thanks for the info, we are also still running cyrus 2.4 on our  
production environment.
But mostly because that was the stable version at the time we migrated  
from stand alone
to murder setup and the "never touch a running system" mentality. I  
was not aware that
there was decreased stability for murder setup in the cyrus 2.5 version.

Do you have some specific bugs in mind?
