I think, the current VM issues would be a good reason to pospone the
Unfortunately, as it seems to me, the VM is quite poorly maintained.
Probably the main reason being that the maintainers don't have enough
time (or, in other words, because they are not paid to fix the
problems). Another difficulty is that there are only few people that
actually work on the VM (why?).
Apart from the bug you mention (http://bugs.impara.de/view.php?
id=0005056) there are others. For example:
- http://bugs.impara.de/view.php?id=4709 (VM blocks after memory
consumtion exceeds ~120MB)
- http://bugs.impara.de/view.php?id=4882 (VM lockup)
