Unfortunately, we have run into a number of problems that mean we shall stick with 9.10, which has been performing very well, for the time being. At the heart of these problems is the vmbuilder package we use to generate ADMIRAL system images.
Ongoing notes about the problems encountered can be seen here http://imageweb.zoo.ox.ac.uk/wiki/index.php/Ubuntu_10.04.

A simple, but dubious, workaround is to put a 100ms delay in the test suite after initially creating the test fixture data; now all tests run fine, repeatedly.
I still find that FireFox can be a bit inconsistent in the time it takes to do things (garbage collection?), so some tests time out occasionally, but I can live with this.
Using: MacOS 10.5 and 10.6, Apache 2.2 (XAMPP distribution), Firefox 3.5.7, jQuery 1.4.2
