The "bugs" aren't likely to ever be ironed out, Karen, because they're not really bugs. Some applications and device drivers were written in such a way as to avail themselves of Window's laxity in security. Or, at the very least, to expect said laxity. SP2 closes a lot of the old security holes and, in so doing, breaks some of those applications. A friend of mine, for example, found he could no longer burn CD's after upgrading, and had to track down new drivers. Another lost her favorite graphics program and, last I heard, still hadn't found a solution.
FWIW, I have not upgraded to SP2 yet. Eventually, of course, we'll have no choice because, likely, all future updates will depend on SP2 already being loaded. I'm hoping, when the inevitable arrives, I'll have a bit more time to devote to fixing stuff. I sure know I don't have that time right now, though.
