That is what this list of for though.  If you have a feature that does  
not work, or something that is not operating reliably etc... then this  
list and the archive is a HUGE source of assistance.  It also gets  
easier over time.  The more you have installed and troubleshot,  
reading this list etc... the easier it gets.  Paying for install ease  
is good, but not at the expense of developers taking the future  
product forward with new features and such.  Lots of peole have it  
working well and are willing to help out.

My 2 cents and experience anyway....
