What's the bug? this:

It's a work in progress.

I would use the master branch but apparently there are certain old things that only exist on 'devel' branch and so my old patches won't apply on 'master'.

What does this mean? The devel branch is always newer than master.

Would you recommend that I avoid 'devel' anyway?

The devel branch is what it claims to be: the development work on bash. If
you want to use it -- and I encourage people to use it to find bugs as we
go along -- you have to accept occasional instability. I appreciate you
using it and reporting this.

Right now, the devel branch is undergoing a series of multiple commits to
fix issues with array subscript expansion. That's what I mean about a work
in progress.
