I was told I had this about 4 years ago by my physio, only affects I've had have been multiple dislocations of a shoulder and a knee but because of how loose the joint is they've gone back in with no problems other than a bit of swelling for a few days.
I was also advised that I would need to ensure my fitness was higher than that of the average bear but that I would also be more susceptible to injury, but other than the aforementioned dislocations I can't say I've noticed :D

It also leads to some great party tricks, mine is rotating my arm 360 degrees then licking my elbow :D
