post release fixes require dedicating resources towards that fix.
It sounds like they got it more or less to where it's "good enough" and abandoned it until now.
"More testing" is never the answer. "complete testing" is the answer. But since there is no way to quantify every possible test scenario with 100% certainty, especially in complex systems, you have to agree upon a test scope and execute it. Sometimes there are just things nobody notices.
