The subject was right all along, but while writing the body I must have
copied from the wrong tab. Sorry for any confusion I caused.

Slightly better for performance as well, but I guess that doesn't count
much here.

By now I encountered this in real live as well, and the first suggested
fix works as expected. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bzr-svn/+bug/234010

Although I'm an outsider, I'd say the risk of breaking anything due to
this fix is considerably lower than breakage due to the bug, so I'd vote
to place it into 1.5.0.

Looking at the email that just arrived, it seems to be decided that way.
