FWIW, since Hugh's heroic work nailing those bugs, I've managed to run
trinity for days since without problems[1]. As we discussed today at the VM summit,
Sasha has found a bunch of things in -next that may be a problem in .14 too,
(and in fact I've hit one of those BUGONs once), but on the whole it's looking
a lot better.

[1] Actually, I've since crashed my test box for stupid reasons now that
I'm 3000 miles away from it until the end of the week, but I have a way better
opinion of rc8 than I did of rc7.
