While I'm plugging things, I'll add my bit for STABLE32.  It really is 
the definitive source for any sort of stability analysis.  And, since I 
have to mention *nix in every post :-), I have it running reasonably 
well on my Linux system using the WINE emulator.  There's one annoying 
hangup that results in crashes under certain circumstances, and I'm 
hoping the Wine guys will be able to resolve it, but until then, 
following the Doctor's advice:  "Well, don't do that, then" works.

By the way -- Ulrich's analysis program is also very good, and I've used 
it under Wine with good results as well.  There's one problem with the 
Greek characters sometimes getting messed up in the display, but again 
that's fairly easy to live with.
