Two branches of the code being used in the web site - "the accounts 
system" for example.  If the complaint is a common one, it would be 
better (I would argue) to fix the problem immediately in one branch of 
the software and let development continue separately.  Doing this fixes 
the problem, reduces support questions, reduces time spent answering the 
same question over and over, and improves the stability and quality of 
the overall product while improving the user experience and perceptions 
at the same time.
