If you feel like trying to figure out the change (reversion, most
likely) that needs to be made to pgf, I could ask Till et al. about
installing it. I expect he'd be ok with it.
There's no sign of action toward fixing the bug.
Indeed, Till evidently no longer has time to actively maintain tikz/pgf,
and no one else has come forward.
Is it possible to revert to an earlier version using tlmgr
If you have the old version in tlpkg/backups, then I guess it would be
theoretically possible. It would be unlikely to be able to do it over
the net, unless you can find a sufficiently stale mirror.
or do I have to install the older version by hand in a local texmf tree?
That sounds like a much simpler/easier/better approach to me :).
