I make sure that everything builds, then I try to build and run Gimp as a test. It's pretty demanding, so if I can get it to work, I figure the mainstream stuff is in reasonable shape. I also maintain the OSX distributions for Gnucash and Gramps, and a problem on either will get my attention, as will bug reports either against gtk-osx or Gtk quartz.

I'm not a fan of unstable releases in modulesets-stable either, but in each case some dependent package whose new features I needed required those versions. Both libraries have subsequent stable releases available, so I should be able to deal with that for this summer's updates.
