I really have no idea, but given that repeater bridge is just an extension of client bridge, only the former adds a VAP to replace the AP that was reconfigured as a wireless client for the client bridge, I would assume client bridge is more stable (all other things being equal) simply because it adds less complexity.

Of course, this comparison isn't as meaningful as it might first appear since client and repeater bridge serve different purposes. They both support wired clients at the bridge, but the latter supports wireless clients at the bridge as well. So one isn't really a substitute for the other.
