Well I encountered a problem with MMA 2.2.4 on DU 4.0 that renders
MMA completely useless. The following message appears and the kernel
then core dumps-Internal Error: FreeExpr called on LiveExpr. 

WRI support said that this is a known bug and that the only solution is
to install MMA 2.2.3. Luckily I was able to find a CD with the latter on it
and do the re-installation . Otherwise it would have cost me a lot of time 
waiting for it to be shipped. I got the impression that MMA 3.0 may take
some time to arrive on unix platforms, hopefully the DU 4.0 version will
actually work when it arrives.
