I was playing with DECnet in December '17, particularly for MAIL-11 in 
VMs running older Ubuntu.

I got it to work well in 2.6.38.  (At least I didn't see any issues.)

I got it to sort of work in 3.8.  (Some things worked, other things did 
not.  I don't recall what did and did not.)

I'll see if I can find any notes.
