So, you mean that testing 2.4.10 received is still insufficient ?

I really can't see the point why it shouldn't be good idea. What speaks
against doing so? any known problems?
Actually I tried to speak in the name of few people that either already reported
issues concerning 2.4.5 itself, or - undoubtfully - will report such problems
in future.
I really doubt if 2.4.5 is more ,,stable'' (according to new stability 
definition that came with 2.4 series ;P ) than 2.4.10.

Personally, I use cvs kernels so it does not affect me, what I said is just
my suggestion/opinion, choice is yours ;-)

Those words doesn't speak against upgrading rpms ;-)
