And to ditto Brad's detailed requests, here's a general overview:

Operating systems change. They're intended to work with current
applications. The OS developer tests against existing apps... their beta
sites test against existing apps... the tool creators are usually beta
sites for the new OS too.

If you find any reproducible difference between a new OS and an existing
OS, whether during beta or just after release, then please send it to the
creator of the OS. They're in the best position to address inadvertent

Toolmakers are interested in tracking reproducible cases too... we have a
vested interest in making sure that the new OS doesn't break existing

In all cases, it helps if you can isolate it out during your testing...
saying "it crashes" doesn't help others to learn the core of the problem.
Considering how the configuration or procedures may be different from other
systems that act normally is a good first step in finding the actual cause
of the symptom.

Summary: New things are tested against old. Things constantly adapt to each
other. Shareable experience helps.
