This happens. My impression is that it's not the case. And probably,
we can alleviate this "inconvenient times" effect by introducing two
deadlines -- for submitting bug reports, and for code changes, thereby
nudging folks into submitting bug reports when there's still time to fix

That's my hope too. However, without some practices to make sure
milestones are set, and without actually checking list of bugs
assigned to milestone, that won't work.
