I'm still running ROMbox from 2004-07-21 but will switch to the current
version soonish.

I've had no problems so far, except for one oddity: I'm occasionally
getting RLODs with ROMBox that I didn't have with normal RockBox. This
is different from the normal movement/vibration-induced RLOD I can
provoke under RockBox, in that they happen under conditions (JBR20 with
Hitachi DK23-DA sitting on the passenger seat of my car) where I have
never had RLOD with normal Rockbox.

Have some critical timings changed for running from flash as opposed to
from RAM? Anyone have an idea?
