Actually, we had the opposite problem...we found 5.3 to be not entirely
stable. We have a multi-user license on our Alpha server, and oddly
enough, if you tried  to do anything where IDL has to pop up a window
while you were sitting at the actual computer, it crashed 100% of the
time. Using it via XWindows on other computers worked just fine. We
haven't had a single crash with 5.4 that I know of. Of course, like you
said, it could just be a Windows problem.
