[PATCH] fix string realloc pool mismatches

From: Joe Orton <joe_at_light.plus.com>
Date: 2000-10-09 20:57:02 CEST

Here's the patch which fixes the string-realloc-from-different-pool
thing in libsvn_wc. I don't get any string corruption with this patch,
and without the pool = str->pool fixup from the debugging patch. (And
the debugging patch reports no mismatches)

This is a bad patch though since all the functions called are now
running out of the per-dir pool rather than the per-file pool. But it
does explain where the mismatches are coming from.

The solutions I see to this problem are:

1) start passing >1 pool to these functions
  -> v. confusing, more trouble than it's worth
2) just pass the longer-living pool when necessary (as per patch)
  -> a bit inefficient, a bit confusing to know when to do it
3) use less pools
  -> v. inefficient, but simpler
4) put a pool * in svn_string_t
  -> efficient, clean

I think 4 is the best option (in case you hadn't spotted ;), and though
it is fundamental, should in no way be an unsafe change to make, since
all it does is increase safety?
