You are also in a very obscure niche.  How many people, other than the 
major active participants, are likely to even run the 
simulations/analyses in the first place, much less be able to understand 
the results and recognize a problem?  Would an issue found by someone 
outside the project but (due, in this hypothesis, to subversion) not 
reproducible on the project's machines be taken seriously?  Or would it 
simply be closed as "WORKSFORME"?

OpenSSL is another FOSS project.  How long did Heartbleed go unnoticed?
