There are a couple of minor bugs (if you hit them, they're major,
but if you don't often hit them, you probably won't ever). I have some
pending patches, but I'm not doing development stuff until after my
exams. If you're not hitting those bugs, it should run indefinately.
I sometimes run ices for 3-4 days at a time (usually killing it off to
add a new feature, rather than because of a crash :-)
If you are hitting one of those bugs, then not long at all.
