Oops, I was unclear.  By "bad output", I mean "font problems" or
something like that.

Basically, we're not going to hold back 2.14 just because apple
broke stuff in 10.6.7, just like we didn't hold back 2.12 (or was
it 2.10?) because apple broke stuff in 10.5.  Similarly, if ubuntu
11.04 is broken when lilypond works on ubuntu 10.04, that won't
delay a stable release.  Similarly, if windows 7 sp2 is broken,
that won't delay a stable release.

Do report bugs, of course; even if something isn't a Critical
problem, it's still a bug that we want to fix eventually.
