[LON-CAPA-admin] LON-CAPA V2.0.2 question

I have a few questions about the v2.0.2 release:

There were reports of difficulty with course reinitialization and STATS 
back in August

 >There is a bug in the STAT code, so that if you do overall statistics
 > or excel/CVS view of CHRT the course structure db file gets tied in
 > write mode and no longer can changed.
 > The short term workaround is to reload the webserver when this occurs.
 > The patch to fix this is:
 > http://mail.lon-capa.org/pipermail/lon-capa-cvs/Week-of-Mon-
 > 20050822/010864.html
 > (or you can pull revision 1.125 of lonstudentassessment.pm and 1.105
 > lonproblemstatistics.pm)
 > The fix to this bug is one of the reasons that 2.0.1 will be coming
 > out tommorrow.

I know this was fixed in 2.0.1, which we did not install. However, on 5 
October Nathan Schoenack reported an error with the upgrade to 2.0.2 
I, like Nathan am wondering if others have experienced similar errors w/ 
v2.0.2? Or if it seems to be working well for folks...

I'm assuming that installing v2.0.2 will also fix the reported reinitialize 
/ STATS bug...is that correct? If there are still a few kinks in 2.0.2 then 
is it advisable to just complete the patch??? Feedback and suggestions most 

Many thanks,
