Comment(by marisn):

 This is a wrong place where to discuss GRASS project issues.

 Still, as it's too late, I'll drop in my rant:
 The problem is that we have too big changes in 6.4.x. Most of blockers are
 in features that were not existing in 6.4.0, 6.4.1. As fixing bugs
 sometimes involves introducing new code and new features, finding new bugs
 is unstoppable. Want an example? Take look at "identify" problems of
 vectors. In 6.4.0 it was plain v.what with printing in console. Pretty?
 No, but worked well. Now try to count how many blockers/critical bugs were
 filled against the new identify tool. As long as we will continue to
 introduce new features/change existing behaviour (i.e. import and launch
 into PERMANENT) just 5 min. before release, we will have blockers just 1
 minute before release. I'm sorry, I don't have any free time for GRASS
 testing. I'm (and probably others too) reporting issues when I find them
 during ordinary work or when my labs fail because of "new and cool
