It's great if it works for you but fact is that 4.0.4 has some
regressions that make it unstable for a lot of users. Some of the
problems seem to be FreeBSD specific but it does also not look great on
other platforms. From what i've seen they are currently fixing lots of
bugs upstream so I expect that the situation improves a lot with 4.0.6.
