The way I read your message was that the fix on the subversion side
is already there and this patch to work it around on our end is of
no importance.

But actually you wanted to say quite the opposite.  They are slow
and it is likely that we need to work their bug around for a while.

If so, then I think it might make sense to cherry-pick it to the
maint branch, even though we usually apply only fixes to our own
bugs to the maintenance track.
