I don't expect that to happen, and certainly very much hope that it will not, but because of that possibility my own GPL'd software has been released with an explicit statement that it is covered by the GPLv2 only, and not any later version. If the GPLv3 meets with my approval (and I fully expect that it will), I will release future versions under GPLv3.
The problem is that if your code contains code copyright by other people you need approval of them for a license change, even for a change from GPLv2 only to GPLv2 or GPLv3.
