So right now I'm installing 7.7.2 beta. Ah, it's such an old and wonderful feeling that I've had since the early days of the squeezebox. Maybe this will be the release that finally fixes all of the problems and crashes? The release that finally means I won't have to go in and try to reconstruct log files, figure out where the add-in conflicts are? There is always that, very brief, five minute feeling of hope.

Then reality sets in.

Even if I had to replace my entire 5 room system with Sonos, I suspect that with the time savings, it would ultimately pay for itself...

If stability is your chief concern, disable all third party plugins and any of the default installed plugins that you don't use. If you replace your system with Sonos you won't even have the option of any add-ins. Here are the only ones in LMS that I find essential:

Date and Time screensaver
Random Mix
Rescan Music Library

Thanks, it does seem like plugins are the root of all of my problems....

I confirm that since i got rid of trackstat, my system is very stable, responsive and faster. No more freeze. Sugarcube works fine.
