There were some bugs in the self-heal daemon present in 3.3.0 and 3.3.1. 
Our systems see the SHD crash out with segfaults quite often, and it 
does not recover.

I reported this bug a long time ago, and it was fixed in trunk 
relatively quickly -- however version 3.3.2 has still not been released, 
despite the fix being found six months ago.

I find this quite disappointing.
