is Replication stable in 4.1.x

The replication in 4.0.x breaks at times with error like too long field length or something like that. This requires constant DBA support. If they fixed this in 4.1.x that would be good. In change logs of almost every release they mention that fixed several bugs related to Replication or bin-logs but its still not stable enough to be deployed in DBA-less environments. I don't know how stable is replication support in other free db's.
Also I wish I don't have to issue 'CHECK TABLE' and 'REPAIR TABLE' queries too often to fix corrupted tables.
