Put another way: it has a less-than-wonderful false-negative rate, but its false-positive rate is close to zero.
I still use it as my 0th order burn-in test (before I try to install an OS).
Also, Memtest86+ (a fork of the original Memtest86 code) seems to be better maintained. I've switched over to it.
