I had a similar problem, but I solved it using "ignore-paths" and "ignore-refs".
If I remember correctly, you need to set both to ignore bdir directly without
ignoring b3, b4,...

For ignore-refs, pls see cdb51a13c3cf4830d499d1138160eacdd2b8aa46, as it is 
currently
undocumented.

So I would try experimenting with the following settings:

[svn-remote "svn"]
        url = file:///home/chris/programs/svn/repo
        fetch = trunk:refs/remotes/svn/trunk
        tags = tags/*:refs/remotes/svn/tags/*
        branches = branches/{b1,b2}:refs/remotes/svn/*
        branches = branches/bdir/{b3,b4}:refs/remotes/svn/*

        # Operates on the imported git branches
        ignore-refs  = ^refs/remotes/bdir$

        # Operates on the SVN branches; you might try it first without this 
statement
        ignore-paths = ^branches/bdir$
