Yeah, same here. It's pretty obvious that RC1 isn't likely to get much more
testing -- these things happen in bursts, and (as Paul noted elsewhere in
his mail) RC1 isn't even publicly released yet. Most of the developer
testing done to sign a release involves strict use of the test suite. This
burst of additional issues at all was the result of adhoc testing. So, if
the goal is ride the statistical wave of find-rates today, we need to
actually get the code into more people's hands. And to do that requires
actually releasing something. It ain't RC1 though, because we now know
without a doubt that that snapshot is *not* a potential candidate for release.

+1 on an RC2, shooting for, perhaps, Monday morning, first thing?
