Lunar Orbits



I read with interest the item on the proposed SSETI Moon Orbiter at

http://www.southgatearc.org/news/june2006/sseti_moon_orbiter.htm

Now I understood that all Lunar orbits were unstable and any sat would 
rapidly crash on the Lunar surface, is that right ? If so does anyone know 
the expected lifetime of a satellite in low altitude polar Lunar orbit - 
would in be a matter of months or years ?
