Just for the record: That was indeed an *internal* memo that leaked out
*without* the author's intention or permission, and it is so far out of
date at this point that continuing to publish it verges on the libelous.

I run Irix 5.3 on my desktop system, and it's up for several months at
a time (well, for however it is between power outages!) with no signs
of leakage...
