Because if we don't test the updated package we don't know:
a) does it actually fix the bug?
b) does it break anything else?
Just because an update 'contains an important fix' doesn't mean it's
fine to release it without testing.
However, I certainly agree this should be fixed ASAP, and saying 'well
it doesn't crash for EVERYONE' and 'upstream should fix it instead' are
pretty weak excuses.
