I am not sure, but I think the blame for most of this stuff

9.1 is a disaster, it should never have been released. I already
had to switch to Mandrake 10.0.

You think SuSE 9.1 should never have been released. I could add to this that Mandrake 10.0 should never have been released and FC2 should never have been released.
My take is its all due to the kernel 2.6.x being very new.
No wonder Slackware is sticking to kernel 2.4.x for their next release.

In order to fix as many bugs in 2.6.x as possible the kernel must be widely used and therefore packaged by the various distros so it gets to the end user who becomes unwillingly(?) a tester ;)

The 2.6 kernel is not all that new, except in the headlines. I've been using it since 2.6.0-pre on SuSE 9.0, with the odd problem of a few modules not automatically being loaded, but that was about all. SuSE 9.1 cleared that all up.
There is the distinct impression that they released too soon, but the kernel has nothing to do with it.
Running stably on 2.6.7-rc2 released by Linus last night.
