the patch is included in richfaces 3.3.3 and there is also one fix in the trunk for fileupload in portletbridge.
Can you please retry with richfaces 3.3.3 and portletbridge 2.1.1-SNAPSHOT (trunk build).
We have already tried the RichFaces upgrade based on this thread (http://community.jboss.org/thread/1367). It is still exhibiting the same behavior. We will also upgrade to the portletbridge snapshot and let you know if the issue persists.
