You have three choices:

 A) upgrade git to latest "master"
 B) upgrade subversion to latest "trunk"
 C) downgrade subversion to a version before that bug was introduced

(A) is probably simplest.  E.g., something like the following should work:

  git clone https://kernel.googlesource.com/pub/scm/git/git.git
  cd git
  make -j8
  make test; # optional, to verify that the git you built works ok
  export PATH=$(pwd)/bin-wrappers:$PATH

Now the updated git is in your $PATH and you can use it.

See INSTALL in the git source tree for more details.

Hope that helps,
