Generally we try to solve the problem when there is a bug at the time of release and if we can't fixed that issue then finally we have to make a release note and we have put this constraints in it.

When there is a known bug at the time of release the first thing that is to be done is to take it to the notice of the management. Depending on the Severity & Priority of the bug, the management will decide whether to fix the bug and then make the release or to fix the bug in the next release. If the bug is going to be fixed in the next release the Client should be intimated about this bug, so that the client will not be dissappointed with the software that is provided to him.

Now we have an option to send the open issues as Known issues, so it's better to let the customer of all the things..

There is a proverb in telugu: Veyyi abadhalu adaina oka pelli cheyyamani, so release evvali anukunte elagaina etcheyochu and it's completely depends on PM's decision, but we never do like that.

If i find a defect at the time of software release I will first escelate the defect to the Higher level Management and based on their decession i will raise the bug and High level management will mention it as a KNOWN issue in the Release Note or High level management might extent the project release date by consulting the client and fix the defect before release.
