That's excellent news!

Well not sure off hand if these problems are fixed (I had a quick scan 
through the 1.0 world but it seems like ancient history :-) I did notice
a somewhat odd behaviour in the pinning case (dropping reference counts) 
but it's possible that I just misremember how it used to work..

Anyway: strongly recommend you move to 1.2 or 1.3-devel as there are 
a large number of improvements and bug fixes in a variety of areas. It 
also makes getting technical feedback on the list a bit easier since 
most of us are using >= 1.2.

It's all free to access, e.g. just type one of 

   bk clone bk://xen.bkbits.net/xeno-1.2.bk
   bk clone bk://xen.bkbits.net/xeno-unstable.bk 

Currently writes to the repository need to be filtered through one
of us; email or similar works just fine. We may move to a more 
decentralized scheme in the future.
