I think it comes down to the relative timeframe for these operations.

Firstly, if a bug is a Gump showstopper, it would be merged pretty 
quickly. If not, then I don't see that much of an issue. Since the merge 
timeframe, even at a week or month, is still much shorter than the 
release timeframe the number of Gump runs with the known bug would be 
relatively small, compared to the number of eventual runs with the fix.
