They will. ;-)

Absolutely. The one-month interval for new versions is a *recommendation*.
If a bug has to be fixed, go for it -- together with an explanation.
Happened to me once as well (new version correcting a bug after two days).
IIRC, Hadley had to submit a new version of one of his packages after 
three days. Murphy's law.
