Been working great for me, not one random re-boot in the week I've been running it, I've been careful to only install tweaks and themes that are iOS5 compatible as you can check here >https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...owsperpage=250. The beta version of Bite for iOS 5 works great so far, no issue's.
Those having problem's have either done something wrong or are installing tweaks that aren't updated for iOS5 yet. Running the semi-tether is sooo worth it, I actually forgot about the un-tethered JB over the weekend since it's been so reliable, not to mention how much faster my iPhone 4 is at everything which I wasn't expecting.

The only problem I had was that when iOS 5 was released a month ago I upgraded and used APTbackup and it installed a bunch of stuff that wasn't yet compatible. My phone kept going into safe mode. It was my own fault for not thinking about it and only installing things that were iOS 5 compatible. Since then I have had no problems. It has really made me get over my fear of using a tethered jailbreak, something I had avoided vehemently in the past. Booting tethered with Redsn0w takes literally a minute, after installing cydia and all the related packages you aren't going to have to boot tethered much if at all after that depending on what apps you install. I've got the semi tether package installed but I haven't used it yet and really don't plan on it.
On a side note I've also got an iPhone 3GS with the old bootrom so I've been using it the last couple weeks and it has been rock solid. I haven't experienced any of the sluggishness that others are reporting. Kinda makes me long for the days when jailbreaks and unlocks seemed to come immediately after every firmware upgrade. Apple is making the whole jailbreak scene die a slow death it seems, the delay between when a new firmware is released followed by a jailbreak seems to be growing exponentially.

i too was concerned about the same situation and i guess there might be a possibility it can affect some setups differently. however, it seems to me after 4 updates (i think) they have worked out a lot of bugs. keep in mind it is still in beta too
i did run into one little issue last night but i am not too sure if it was semi-tethered related, MS or Core Utilities related. right after i installed the semi-tethered i installed Autocorrection Bar. tried it out and decided it was not a necessity, so i removed it. well it did not go completely away. the package was removed from Cydia but it remained anywhere that required the keyboard being used. i have my settings configured as Developer so i can see all packages being downloaded, and take screen shots, in anticipation of issues just like this. unfortunately there was only one package and it was called Autocorrection Bar. needless to say my OCD would not allow this so i restored as new and re-setup everything, including the semi-tethered
so with my current setup it does not appear there are any conflicts with the newer Mobile Substrate or Core Utilities but there's no guarantee that it would be the same with another jailbreak setup. although, it seems they have worked out a lot of bugs since the initial release

add the following repo:
http://thebigboss.org/semitetherNote: after install, you will have to reboot your device, so make sure you are prepared at a computer to reboot tethered with redsn0w or just “home button out” of cydia and manually respring until you get home.
To test the success of this, simply reboot your device. If it boots up, it worked. Make sure you are near your computer so you can tether boot it after to get your jailbreak functionality back.
