Tor 0.2.0.x is somewhat more stable than 0.2.1.x-alpha in general. For
example, we just made a change in that will make Tor
mysteriously fail to start on some obscure operating systems.

On the other hand, if your 0.2.0.x keeps running out of memory and
crashing, then you might find 0.2.1.x to be more stable. ;)
