Thank you Thomas, good to know it.
But I am more interested in the Bluebottle reliability as server, and if 
you can share some known problems.

 From my experience with the 09.12.05 version:

1. FTP server is very sensible and must be handled with care. One 
verified condition: if the FAT partition where the ftp is assigned, is 
mounted read-only, on the first login connection the ftp server goes in 
recursive trap, and the system is completely out of user control. It 
could be only hardware rebooted. Not very funny for a database server. 
This didn't happened on the 20.07.05 version. Now I open the ftp server 
on that machine only for administrative tasks, and immediately close it 

2. Rebooting is not always successful. This is ugly specially when done 
remotely by VNC. I am not sure, but I suspect:
    - Some "innocent" application trap: the application and system are 
perfectly working, but rebooting fails.
    - Some combination of Object Traker and Performance Monitor use.
