Thank you for this bit of very interesting information.
This actually convinced me to move up to 6.2.
(I formerly tried to avoid this as I'm a little bit frightened by the
idea of upgrading from 5.5-rls to 6.2-rls)
Are there some things I really should think of? (Besides making a Backup?)
(I'm using http://people.freebsd.org/~rse/upgrade/freebsd-upgrade-5x-6x.txt
as a reference and checked the RLS notes of 6.2)

If it looks good,And it taste good,And it feels good,
There has got to be something wrong some where,
So be careful.
