And the released bootloader don't have this issues?
- If they also have the issues, the SVN bootloader should still be better than
    the old release - so making a new release would not solve all issues, but
    it would still be nice to have solved some of the problems in the released
    bootloader.
- If they don't have the issues - an analysis of the differences could
    possibly show where the problem is.

If the risk of bricking my device isn't big (or if it's possible for me to reanimate
a bricked H300) I would try to put a current SVN version of the bootloader on
my device...
