svn_config_ensure resulting in segfault with unknown user

I was invoking subversion from a CGI running as userid 999. However, at
some point after the webserver had started, user 999 was deleted. When
trying to figure out why subversion wouldn't run ("svn help"
didn't run), I eventually just had the webserver print the output of
ltrace, and saw that subversion was segfaulting in svn_config_ensure
(libsvn_subr/config_file.c). I think this is due to the unknown user
problem.

Restarting the webserver, with its new user, fixed the issue.

I didn't see any method for me to directly open a ticket for this on
the tigris.org website, so I've sent a message here as suggested.

Thanks,
Alex
