One thing people working in Linux have to remember is that different
versions of the same distro have had problems.  The Linux environment
has been evolving much faster than Unix--after all, Unix has had 30+
years to settle down (and believe me when I tell you in the early years
in Unix I saw some really hairy problems!), while each new Linux distro
is assembling a complex system from sometimes disparate components.

If your Debian systems are older, or weren't maintained in a consistent
manner, I could easily see you having severe problems.
