in thread Random errors after upgrading 5.10.0 to 5.10.1

Thanks for those tips. The main problem is that the code works most of the time. I don't understand how it would be possible to work most of the time if there were actual problems with the syntax or module incompatibility. I thought it might be related to load but I have been monitoring the server load and the errors do not correlate with that either. I'm a bit lost as to how to actually fix this as I have around 200k lines of code to go through. The site is running on debian squeeze and is in production. I can fix incompatibilty issues if they are logical but random inconsistent errors that don't correlate is pretty tough.

    Do you know what a pointer is? This is how "random errors" happen, some pointer points to the wrong memory, and then there is a crash or .... 5.10 is known buggy, modules compiled for 5.10 could still be vulnerable. If you installed 5.10.1 over 5.10, upgrade all the modules
