Hmm. I assume you either restarted emacs or re-evaled the function
after applying the patch, right? If you confirm that the vc-svn.el
you're using has the patch and that you are actually using the patched
version, then please send me exact details of what you're doing.
Maybe there's something I overlooked.

I've been using ediff with subversion with no problem since I applied
the patch locally. Worst case, position the point at the end of the
definition of the vc-svn-checkout defun and do C-x C-e to eval the
defun. This way you'll be sure you're using the right version.
