Loud second on this one. Every point release seems to require
upgrading the license server as well. I can't believe what a
pain the license server for Matlab is; worst I've used for any
software I can remember.
Last time I had the Mathworks guy on the phone I thanked him for
reminding me why I liked free software so much.
