Bottom line, no one really knows what the player will do.
I doubt a firmware fix (if it happens at all) would happen within a month.
My perspective is I'd rather wait and get a player that does what I need it to do, than get one that doesn't and hope that Samsung will add a feature that they're not obligated to furnish. If you think about it, there's a good argument for Samsung to hold back this feature until the next generation so that there would be a compelling reason for first generation owners to upgrade. They are in it for the money, you know.
