Well, what I was getting at is that since you can reproduce the
problem locally, it would be considerably easier for you to find the
change that fixed the problem in the more recent branch (svn log and
svn blame should be enough to tell you what revision it was introduced
in), and given that, it should be pretty simple for you to apply that
change to the 0.9.x source tree and see if it fixes your problem.  If
it does, the more experienced developers would have a much easier time
reviewing the change and potentially committing it to that branch.
