Should I worry about the flex cable problem with my Canon 24-105 F4 IS?

Does the aperture flex cable issue mostly affect the early copies of this model and the first version of the lens?

I'm going to be travelling for work (photographer) to a remote place where I really need the lens not to fail over a period of one month. My copy was manufactured in 2013. I've used the lens quite a bit and I'm the second owner. I'd upgrade to the mk II version right away if the lens seemed overall significantly better but since it doesn't I'm trying to decide wether to be (overly?) precautious or not.
