I'm assuming you're reporting it as r29536+ because it was r29535 that you last tested. r29536 itself has no changes I can see that would affect it. Someone else has reported that "socket." doesn't work since:
r29545 "corefile: Don't crash on 0-length files [O. Galibert]"
Although I haven't tested it personally.
There have been other changes since, but I haven't mentioned them here due to the report of "socket." not working.
r29656 "Fixed crash introduced in r29533 when the 6551 transmitter and receiver is shutdown (nw)"
r29668 "MOS 6551 Fixed uninitialised variable that could prevent transmit irq from being generated after reset. [smf]"
r29668 "Added serial printer, renamed centronics printer to match. Standardised the configuration of rs232 devices. All serial devices are now connected using an rs232 port. [smf]"
Since r29668 baud rate selection is in system configuration, you can set it once and it will save it on exit. You will only have to change it again if you ever start it without null_modem plugged in.
If changing the configuration doesn't work then try a svn "update to" on each of these revisions, build it and let me know which one stopped it working. If it's r29545 then you're safe to just locally revert it until it gets fixed.
I'm not entirely sure what OG's change was about, but if it's not crashing then you're not hitting it.
