Had no issues with 10.5.5 so far; Live 7.0.10 didn't like it too much (a few graphical hangs, and some crashes) but 7.0.9 works like a charm.

As for the toad... TASTY!

Leopard, in general, runs noticeably smoother on 10.5.5 for me in comparison to 10.5.2

clone that drive before updates! I always clone before updates, but I am paranoid.
10.5.2 had some issues though.

+1 I'd wait....

Firendly doctors advice,

Backup boot drive on to firewire external drive using Carbon Copy Cloner ***, boot to backup boot drive and check that the damn thing can boot (very important).

Boot back into normal drive and download update from apple website, install
