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!
