What I don't understand is why the bug fixes and new features would have to be released at the same time? You've said that you plan to do both, so presumably it would take the same time whether you fix the bugs first, then add features, or add features first, then fix bugs? So why not fix the bugs first, release that patch to the player base, and then add new features at your leisure? Take all the time you want with the new features, we understand you're short handed and will wait patiently for the new stuff. This way would have the exact same programming time (actually maybe less, because you will have fixed bugs that could cause problems with the new features), the players will get you use the program with fewer bugs in the interim, and you can work on the new stuff without us bugging you...
Instead, from the way you've described bugs ("every little thing...", etc.) it doesn't seem like you attach great importance to them and so I wouldn't be surprised if they are not fixed at all.
Lots of overhead to any release.
AS I've said, try some of that patience those kickstarters have.
