Thanks for your advice. May I ask what patch that Richard gave to you to fix your bug? Is it the same as what Richard showed me before in the following link?

For what it's worth, I've used UBI fastmap in production, and so far we didn't have issues.
Note that we prepared a lot of tests, based on our particular use case. If I remember correctly, we hit one bug and Richard was kind enough to fix it in a few hours.
So my advise is: use it, but by all means test it. As anything else.
Hope it helps,
