1.0 worked great for me aswell, but when I put it in an actual
production environment - and as you say testing under system load on
planned hardware - I encountered problems. The problems occured when not
"treating" the database well; volently closing connections during heavy
queries and ungently shutting the database down. It is a sad thing, but
such situations might occur in my system, so my database must deal with
it some way. I'm not saying that the database should do miracles, but
some sort of error fixing must exist in cases the database encounters
unexpected behavior. I'm going to keep testing the 1.1b2dev, and will
hopefully be able to contribute something to this project...

Thank you for your answer!
