The FS type of what? A repository? I suppose mod_dav_svn could go
looking for repositories in the various Locations at startup, but
generally we don't get to see a repository until the first request.
Or the FS type of the FS modules?

The 2.4 worker MPM doesn't trigger the assertion I added or any valgrind
errors so it doesn't have the problem at present. Obviously that could
change. The problem may well exist with 1.7 and the 2.2. event MPM, but
that MPM is 'experimental'.
