I see.  

Perhaps you can statically characterize what version (variables
emacs-version, emacs-major-version, emacs-minor-version) contains the
broken ewoc, and then just redefine it in these versions, in your
~/.emacs:

    (require 'ewoc)
    (when (or (< emacs-version-major NN)
              (and (= emacs-version-major NN)
                   (< emacs-version-minor MM)))
      (defun ewoc-collect (...)
         ...))

or else, if you can detect the broken version with a test:

    (require 'ewoc)
    (unless (equal 'expected-result
                   (ewoc-collect 'test-arguments))
       (defun ewoc-collect (...)
         ...))

(you can add a (byte-compile 'ewoc-collect) after the defun in either
case if you need it fast).
