I just moved from 5.1-current to 5.1 release, and fixed a lot of
problems on a horribly unstable box by doing so. I believe downgrading
to stable is very awkward, but others will be better qualified to
discuss that than I am.
I used *default release=cvs tag=RELENG_5_1 in my cvsup file, cvsupped,
made world, made kernel, installed kernel, rebooted, installed world,
rebooted. No problems at all.
