The recent determination of Lambda-nucleon spin-dependent interaction matrix elements in Lambda hypernuclei [1] from comprehensive measurements of gamma ray transitions [2] provides accurate estimates of Lambda-Lambda separation energies in double-Lambda hypernuclei across the nuclear p shell. Here we outline a shell-model approach [3] to evaluate the consistency of the world emulsion data on double-Lambda hypernuclei [4] in terms of the uniquely identified Lambda-Lambda-6He event [5]. The implications of this study on whether or not the H dibaryon [6] is stable against strong decays, with mass below twice the Lambda mass, will be discussed in the light of recent lattice gauge searches [7].
