I too have been running a BE-LFS system since the end of May.  Although 
I posted a couple of things, most often I've been holding back because 
I don't feel I understand (yet) thoroughly some of the technology 

I will say now that my system has been as reliable and useful as ever.  
Of course, I am not running a modular kernel, and I have no devices 
that I am hotplugging.  I'm using it as my internal DNS server among a 
few other services.  I *was* impressed by the way all my devices were 
correctly created by udev - for that machine I had previously been 
running LFS 5.1pre2 and I ran into problems because I hadn't correctly 
configured all the devices needed by my scsi cd-rw drive.  If you would 
like more input as far as testing goes, perhaps someone could suggest 
types of actions that would expose possible bugs/flaws? (Forgive me, 
I've done zero of this type of work before...)
