Glad to help. Something roughly equivalent to that patch will be included in
the next release. So you shouldn't need that patch forever.

I've personally never used mod_security with Subversion so I can't make a very
definitive statement regarding it.

Subversion 1.8 clients use chunked http requests and older versions of
mod_security didn't allow chunked http requests. So I'd at least recommend
that you make sure you have a recent version of it.

Other than that I don't have anything additional to add other than what Branko
already told you.
