Thanks. (Next time please say which RA layer, though.)

I've just reproduced this with ra_dav, so no need now. The bug is
mysterious so far. Here is the stacktrace. I got this by shutting
downn Apache2, then restarting with the -X flag under gdb, to get one

 $ gdb /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd
 (gdb) break main
 (gdb) run -X
   [gdb stops the process temporarily, now all symbols are loaded]
 (gdb) continue
   [now run the command, wait for segfault]
 (gdb) where

That's here, right on the arrow:

   APR_DECLARE(apr_hash_index_t *) apr_hash_next(apr_hash_index_t *hi)
       hi->this = hi->next;
       while (!hi->this) {
           if (hi->index > hi->ht->max)
               return NULL;
 =====> hi->this = hi->ht->array[hi->index++];
       hi->next = hi->this->next;
       return hi;

And take a look at this:

   (gdb) p *(hi->ht)
   $8 = {pool = 0x8178060, array = 0x0, iterator = {ht = 0x0, this = 0x0,
       next = 0x0, index = 16}, count = 20, max = 31}

That doesn't look like a healthy hash table to me :-) !

I popped up to the frame in svn_repos_get_logs(). The relevant swath
of code is near the end of that function:

      if ((this_rev > 0) && discover_changed_paths)
          svn_fs_root_t *newroot;
          changed_paths = apr_hash_make (subpool);
          SVN_ERR (svn_fs_revision_root (&newroot, fs, this_rev, subpool));
          SVN_ERR (detect_changed (changed_paths, newroot, subpool));

      SVN_ERR ((*receiver) (receiver_baton,
                            (discover_changed_paths ? changed_paths : NULL),
                            author ? author->data : NULL,
                            date ? date->data : NULL,
                            message ? message->data : NULL,

(It's using a subpool because it's looping over log messages, of

And that's all I know right now; don't know yet why/how changed_paths
is screwed up. Working on it.
