Did you mean Windows bugs? While I can't really test on Windows ATM

Although the stable branch pattern may be better, we're used to things
this way and some translators commit to trunk also. Probably we should
stay with the existing pattern for now but could perhaps change in the
future with plenty of notice.
One argument in favour of stable trunk is that more people test the
release (it's possible unstable changes hide release bugs).
