Okay. Concerning the working copy: IIUC if "fixing" means "making it
possible to store sha1 collisions in a working copy", it's more or
less impossible to fix this without a "format bump" of the working
copy format (which means the fix can't be backported to 1.9 or 1.8 --
and even for trunk / 1.10, a format bump is currently not planned).
But "fixing" can also mean "rejecting the collision in a graceful
way". That's probably much more realistic, and perhaps backportable.
Though I believe there are big questions about the performance impact
of any solution ...

Anyway, if you want to look into this, please start a new thread to
discuss your ideas first (we need to come to a consensus first about
*what behaviour we want*, and how this could be achieved).

I guess the 1.10 release notes are an option. And our FAQ. Maybe a FAQ
should be the first priority, as this issue applies to all older
releases. Are you willing to draft something (either as a patch
against [1], or just as a written suggestion)? If so, please send it
in another thread too, so we can keep this thread focused on getting
1.10 alphas rolling again :-).
