CouchDB 1.0.0 data loss bug

If you are running CouchDB 1.0.0, you'll want to have a look at this notice in the near future. "Over the weekend of August 7th-8th, 2010 we discovered and fixed a nasty bug in CouchDB 1.0.0. The problem was subtle (cancelling a timer, without deleting the reference to it) but the ramifications are not: once the bad code path is triggered, subsequent writes to the database are never committed. This means there is potential data-loss for users of 1.0.0." There is an update available, but the right sequence of steps should be followed to minimize the chances of lost data in the update process.
