First of all, there have occasionally been bugfix releases of Sage:
* http://www.sagemath.org/changelogs/sage-5.0.1.txt
* http://www.sagemath.org/changelogs/sage-5.4.1.txt
* http://www.sagemath.org/changelogs/sage-6.1.1.txt
* http://www.sagemath.org/changelogs/sage-6.4.1.txt

Such critical bugs are very rare in Sage. I cannot recall any bug in a released version of Sage in the last year or so that would justify a bugfix release. Remember that Sage is tested well before releases, on the patchbot, on the buildbot and by developers running beta/rc versions.
