Gryphoceratops published? (was RE: Vitakridrinda publication validity)

According to one of the authors, the version with "Gryphognathus" wasn't 
intended to be the final draft, despite being leaked by the journal.  
And is the print version of the "June" issue of Cretaceous Research seriously 
out already?!  It's still February! 
If the June 2012 issue containing *Gryphoceratops* is has indeed been printed 
in February 2012, but someone later publishes a synonym of it in a journal 
dated May 2012, how would anyone prove the priority of *Gryphoceratops*?  Has a 
taxon ever been unfairly sunk because the journal was dated incorrectly?
