Patches against CVS are always better.  There's some value to making patches against the latest release, as it's easier for users to apply  them.  But if you only make one patch, please make it against CVS (and submit to the [http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=42445&atid=433166 patch tracker] at SourceForge; that way it won't get lost).
