No, what happens then is that you fix bugs quicker than they are found.
Experience with the last 2 releases showed that what happens is about
this:

* the bugcount starts out reasonably low and we freeze
* people decide to finally upgrade to the new distribution and file
  a lot of bugreports
* those are fixed
* serious testing begins and the bugcount triples again
* those are also fixed
* release

The plan this time is to be much more agressive in fixing bugs and also
clean up the archive more, so the bugcount will hopefully stay at a
reasonable number.
