Without this patch you get an incomplete directory in your working copy when there is a 'server-excluded' subdirectory.
This directory can't be updated and every recursive update of the working copy fails when the server reports the directory as absent.

See the "Very big problems with access rights (authz file using) in SVN v1.7.0" thread on users_at_s.a.o.
