We have 2.5.1 with only security related patches applied.  We have recently
discovered the symptoms of some memory leaks which appear to be OS related.
The symptoms were pitiful performance and failure to load large images caused
by limited available RAM and limited available swap.  So our GB of total
memory was down to 10% of that.

We plan to try patching up, or moving to 2.6.  We also plan to separate
swap and /tmp which are by default together (by modifying vfstab).
