It appears to be for me.  I had problems with 9.0 not reading CDs and rebooting with no error messages frequently.  I have upgraded to 9.1-RC2 and it now reads CDs just fine, and has not rebooted.  However, the uptimes with 9.0 ranged from about 2 hours to 30 days.  I have only had 9.1-RC2 running for a couple weeks so have not declared victory yet.  I has been running for more than most of the uptimes already.

I have no information on this.
