Loud second on this one.  Every point release seems to require
upgrading the license server as well.  I can't believe what a
pain the license server for Matlab is; worst I've used for any
software I can remember.

Last time I had the Mathworks guy on the phone I thanked him for
reminding me why I liked free software so much.
