Agreed - if you installed this version in production without fully testing
then it's your problem, you'll need to downgrade. If you've
tested thoroughly and hit the bug then you you're aware of the issue
already and do not have it installed in production. If you tested
thoroughly and didn't hit the bug then it's likely you're not creating the
conditions that cause the problem. Pointing out the obvious but the message
here is test, test and test some more.
