Bad fixes are a routine cause of bugs. In business developments, on average you can expect that 5-10% of your bug fixes will generate new bugs. Security fixes should pass a more intense inspection and test cycle, but still... Say that one of the last 100 security fixes has resulted in another bug; 1% of bad fixes would look like a desirable target even in security fixes, even if the fix isolated leaves a bad impression.
I guess what I'm saying can be resumed as: without more information it is hard to know how bad it is.
