Tunnelblink is Really Flaky

Trying out Tunnelblink 3.0b9 has really twisted my stomach around. It's really flaky at best. At times, its detail page would show that "Initialization Sequence Completed". But when I ping the remote host, I would time out. At other times, it would report "TCP: connect to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx failed", but then I would be able to connect to the remote host fine. The GUI interface seems to be from a quality product. And it is highly taunted on Google Code site. So I'm really surprised to see a version 3.0 product being this flaky.

Before looking for another OpenVPN product for Mac OS X, I decided to visit its web site again. I noticed a small passage that I missed before. Is says:

"It works on Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and above. Fixes to the recent compatibility problems with Leopard are included in the snapshot and are currently in the testing phase."

Could the incompatibility issue it mentions be the same symptom that I am experience. I'm on Mac OS X 10.5.4, which I think is Leopard. It looks like the snapshot release is worth checking out. But what's strange is that the version I downloaded is Tunnelblick_3.0b9.dmg, while the snopshot is Tunnelblink-Universal-3.0b8.dmg. Doesn't the version seem to be going backward?

Looks like I have been spelling the name of this software wrong the whole time. Let me correct it for the record . . . It's Tunnelblick!
