hg copy -A and broken symlinks in Mercurial 1.4?

I ran into an issue with Mercurial 1.4 (the version used in RHEL 6) not
handling broken symlinks properly. I opened a Bugzilla against it which
demonstrates the issue:

It appears that this is fixed in newer versions of Mercurial, so I did some
searching through the mail archives and these seemed like the most likely
candidates for the fixes:

Does anyone have any input on the fix for this in Mercurial 1.4?

Also, is 1.4 still being maintained so version 1.4.4 could be released with
this fix? Or is a fix for this issue just going to have to be maintained
downstream by RedHat?
