As mentioned in the JBS bug report for this bug, [SKARA-1080](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/SKARA-1080), which was fixed by PR #1188, was only a partial fix of the problem where the `/backport` command creates the local branch for the PR based off a stale copy of the target branch. The solution is to fetch the target branch from the target repo and base the patch off of that branch.

I didn't add any new tests for this case, so I'll file a follow-up issue.
