I don't feel comfortable with my knowledge to run something that is not 
RELEASE yet. Is there a way to get the fix on 9.2?

Can anyone point me to the bug(s) in question, so I can see what is 
going on / what I'm risking?

I can also just run the Minecraft server on my PC, and open the router 
to let her friends play with her too. It is not as ideal though, because 
if I'm working I might have to cut them off.
