When we attempted to go to 1.5.9, we had more complaints
that with the 1.4.1 series. Any words of wisdom before
attempting 1.5.10? If this does what I need it to do,
and so we choose this as a migration path,
I will be actively debugging it and doing my best to
gather bug reporting data. More to come!

I did read the release notes, and I saw it there, but
it looked like the registry setting was for a "default"
value, not a default for a "max" value. Or am I just
reading it incorrectly and I need to change the registry
setting because it can't be changed through the client?

In other words, if I set the registry entry to 30000,
will that set the value in the client to 30000, or will
it change the maximum allowed value? (I guess I could just
try it and see, but I'd like to know what the actual
definition is... Thanks!)
