1.6.15 ?

In the latest 1.6.14 release of TSVN there's a bug which can cause an
app that uses a file-open/save dialog to crash. But usually the app
won't crash but the exception caused by the wrong handle is caught by
the OS and nothing happens.
So my question: should I create another release (1.6.15) not even a
week after the last release?

Details: the bug is that a NULL-handle is used. The APIs throw an
exception because of this, but that exception is caught by the OS and
nothing really bad happens. The problem is that if a debugger is
attached to the process, that debugger has to handle the exception and
not the OS. So in that case, the app is stopped - or depending on how
that debugger is configured the app might crash.

All in favor of 1.6.15 this week say "I"...
