The only problem I've had with installing patch clusters (albeit on 2.6) was
a few weeks ago when the cluster decided to replace my sendmail.cf with a
"better" version. It completely mucked up mail for a while but it does save
the old configuration and copying back the original solved the problem.
On another server running sendmail (which also mucked up) I simply did a
patchrm on the specific sendmail patch and all returned to normal. Whether
the patch will try and install itself again the next time I load a patch
cluster I don't know...
As far as I can tell, all the other GNU apps and everything still work. If
you're really worried do the "recommended" full backup before you install
the patch cluster and then if it goes horribly wrong, do a full restore!
