We had problems with 12.1(8b)EX3, then we switched to 12.1(12c)E4 after quite a bit of testing.  Recently, though, we debugged a problem with that release involving MSDP peering with a Juniper router.  I'm in the process of testing a patched version of 12.1(12c)E4.

The last time I checked, the Cisco documentation on hybrid-to-native conversion was misleading.  I can send you our notes on that process offline, if you're interested.
