Ok, I see the problem you mention, but I still _want_ what I said.
Sure I additionally want that bug to be fixed.

As a workaround for the meantime: It still works if I update in a
subtree that is not an ancestor of the one with the mentioned commit,
doesn't it?

I believe that, but as I am not familiar with the svn sources yet, I
assume a developer that is will be much faster in fixing it.
