If a bug is resolved on bugzilla, then the fixed version would almost 
certainly be in the next code release. It would be in the CVS version 
before that release if you were to need access to the fix. (See GROMACS 
website or wiki.) However one should not routinely use a CVS version 
without carefully inspecting the change logs and bug statuses, lest 
there be some new bug introduced by the other work going on around the 
time you got your CVS version.

If you really need some fix, then work out how to apply just the CVS 
changes pertinent to your fix. If you don't need a fix for some known 
issue relevant to your simulation, then don't worry about it until you do!
