You didn't answer my question, but I gather by your response that the patch
isn't yet in trunk. At this point, it depends on if somebody finds the time to
review the patch and commit the fix. With people working to get trunk in a
branchable state, that might not happen for a while.

However, if the patch is a bug fix, there's no problem with it going into the
branch after it's created, so you've got some home. I'd wait a couple of weeks
for things to settle down and then poke people again.
