Re: RB4011 and RB1100 AHx4 "bricks" randomly

Yes, I noticed that. My suspicion is that ROS is asking the chip to do something it's not capable of, and creating an out of bounds condition. That in turn is causing unexpected behaviour. That's my current working theory anyway.

Re: The Dude, v6.37rc test builds.

You may already know this then, since 10g interfaces are on your to-do list. But in 6.37rc15 at least, diff64 has a serious limitation. While it can handle 64 bit counters as inputs, its output is the least significant 32 bits. So any difference over ~4.29 billion is erroneous.
