I should have, but did not, I'm afraid. Thus far its taken anywhere
from approximately five minutes to two hours for 'bang' to explode, as
it were. However, after upgrading to R12B4 I've yet to see a crash of
the sort I described previously, though the module has not yet been
running for more than 1 hour and 15 minutes.
