I can confirm that the Windows and Solaris binaries provided by WANdisco do
include fixes for these issues. Binaries for other platforms do not include
httpd and use the OS or distribution provided httpd.

Note that (and I suspect this is probably true for other binaries) these
binaries are patched by removing the changes that introduced the regressions in
httpd. The patches included earlier in this thread actually fix the
regressions without removing the beneficial changes added in the newer httpd
releases. For use with SVN the difference is not significant unless you are
using DAV clients other than Subversion with the same copy of httpd.
