You can usually always rely on the fixes branch being stable. Only bug 
fixes generally get committed to it so it gets more stable over time. 
Occasionally  people make a mistake like the one that caused the bug you 
hit but that's rare. With hind sight Jarod should have committed the 
firstl fix to trunk only first and let it sit there for a few weeks just 
to make sure it didn't cause any unforeseen problems before merging it 
into the fixes branch. I can only assume he'd been testing it for a 
while without any problems.
