Yes, this is a bug that's being looked at now.  Apologies for the

You're in control on this one.  In the readme file in trunk, you  
should specify the "Stable Tag".  You can read all about the readme  
format in the "meta readme file": http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ 

Downloads for all tags and for trunk are made available:
plugin.zip = trunk
plugin.tagname.zip = tag

The default download (the one you get when you click the "download  
this plugin" button) is the one specified by your trunk readme's  
Stable Tag as above (though this behavior was a bit buggy until  

plugin.latest.zip is a good idea, and will be implemented... sometime :)
