I have verified that up-to-date data is always received when fetching single merge requests by ID, so the patch simply re-fetches MRs to make sure the data is always up to date. I'm also adding logging to track when stale data is detected. This will help us verify (at least empirically) when the GitLab issue resolved for us.
