I created the table based on known AIX bugs that affect getaddrinfo,
and it's more than random numbers.

Maybe the problem would go away if the information were not in a table,
but in some other format, say, an unordered list.

But I also see no big problem with returning to "use the latest fixpack".
It is certainly a safe wording, although it will urge people to undergo
the painful procedure of an upgrade even if that is unnecessary.

Yours,
