I remember having had a lot of problems with 6.0.2 and an alpha server
and I did fix several problems. The most important one ended up being an
incorrect byte-swap in RPC2 which made it completely fail on the
roundtrip time calculation, causing a high number of disconnections that
didn't happen on a switched 100base-T, but occured quite frequently on
the half-duplex 10base-T network to the test server.

But I guess there were a couple of reintegration and resolution fixes as
well, although most of them should only be an issue when you have
multiple servers.
