There's also the chance 10 other things will be broken in a few days
when your 1 problem gets fixed, which is just about always my
experience unfortunately...

At least before a release, the patches likely to cause problems get held
back for a while, and the rest get some testing, and time for bugreports
to come in.

I'm using CVS for various reasons, but stability is certainly not one
of them.
