How about "download the proposed fix from CVS and give that a go"?

Since the fix awaits input from testers we can't very well release it
immediately. You've tested it, so that makes one person. If a few more
report that it's now working as intended without any downsides we'll
probably go ahead and cut a release in the next few days, but releasing
untested code that might break something else just to fix a bug isn't
really good practice.

I don't have access to hit the release-button yet, or I would probably
do so for this particular bug.

Good enough for me.

Considering the successes of the wars on alcohol, poverty, drugs and
terror, I think we should give some serious thought to declaring war
on peace.
