I say we still have to find a way to reproduce the problem without SVN.
If we can't, then there's still a good chance that we're doing something
wrong (either in SVN or in APR). We do know that the loop patch doesn't
really fix the problem, it only makes it less likely to happen -- and
harder to track down.
