Here's a proposal:

1) We add a new ticket type "Merge to release".
2) When you fix a bug in the trunk, instead of closing it as "fixed",
you change it to "Merge to release".
3) After the tests have cycled for a while, and you are confident of
the fix, you mark the bug as "fixed".

1) We can track bugs that are fixed in trunk, but not yet in release.
2) People interested in the bug can test it in trunk.

1) More complexity in the bug flow "process".
