I can reproduce this problem in a few easy steps:

svnadmin create f
svn mkdir -m "message" file://$PWD/f
perl -e 'print "A"x4502355' > big-message
svn ps --revprop svn:log -r 1 -F big-message file://$PWD/f
svnserve -X #or gdb it
svn log -r 1 svn://localhost$PWD/

I believe it to be a pools/vformatter bug. It appears (to me) to be the
same one that was reported as a potential buffer-overflow a few months

It is proving to be very difficult to track down; I will try building
APR without -O2 to see if that makes the debugging easier.
