1.9.4 fix

Hi all,

I'm in the process of dump/loading our repositories to take advantage of FSFS format 7. Looking at the change list for 1.9.4 (out tomorrow), it shows:
       fsfs: fix a rare source of incomplete dump files and reports (r1717876)

I'm having trouble finding a layman's explanation of what this issue means, however. (I've read https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SVN-4554 but it doesn't make much sense to me.) In practical terms, I'm running through several hundred thousand revisions across 20 repositories. Is there a chance this bug could happen silently and corrupt a dump in a way that wouldn't be picked up during svnadmin load (or by 'svnadmin verify' following the load)?

I'm on 1.9.2 now. Should I wait for 1.9.4 to do this?
