The fixes came from upstream indeed. They are fixes that were committed
from about March 10th to April 7th (i.e., from the 2.22.00 release to
2.22.1). Additionally, the Ubuntu 2.22.1 change logs ([1], [2], and [3])
list the bugzilla fixes included on 2.22.1.

The Ubuntu/Debian specific fixes are listed in the source packages,
under ./debian/patches; a quick look there did not show me anything we
added off upstream that would address the memory corruption, etc.

Anyway, of course, for Ubuntu we do recommend you run the up-to-date
versions -- remember we are still beta on Hardy 8.04.

I have been busy lately but, to my (dim) remembering, the only critical
issue we still have left on Evo for Hardy is the E-D-S loop on startup
([4] for Ubuntu, [5] for bugzilla).
