Are you speaking about non-LTS versions? According to 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LTS "Instead of doing an automatic full package 
import from Debian unstable, we will do it from Debian *testing^1 *." 
The footnote says "*1.* We reserve the right to /selectively/ pull in 
updates from unstable, if we believe the stability of the package in 
Debian is better than what is in the current Ubuntu archive."

I've had 0 problems with 12.04 LTS, having used for about a year for 
several servers, doing frequent apt-get updates. But this has been 
server use, not desktop (and I haven't used Claws on it).
