Lapse in what way?  I labored long and hard to get LP64 model builds
working reliably on newer RS/6000 hardware, and it's used in production
daily at my employer's shop.  

The only open issue that I'm able to confirm relates to socket misbehavior
on AIX 4.2.x (32-bit platforms).  Neither Jarkko nor I saw any problems
prior to release, so I'm not sure how this slipped through.  It's my
intention to nail the problem in the near future (though fixes from the
community would be fine).
