Please correct me if I'm making this up, but as I understand the
numbering, 12674 is just the number of the most current changeset
number of the trac repo as a whole, on the day the -fixes branch was
checked out. If the 12619 changeset (flagged as the bad one) has not
been backported, surely the *stable* 0.20-fixes branch is still free
of the bug?

The bug may be a blocker for 0.21, but 'you get what you pay for', you
can expect SVN to break at any time, you should use the stable branch
for maximum stability, et al.

As I previously thought!

Aha! Many thanks for the clarification - I was sure the stable builds
were still built from the -fixes branch but the specfile log did make
me wonder.
