I've just confirmed that these still reproduce on HEAD, but I won't have
time to dig into them further until this weekend. Recipe below for
anyone interested.

Recipe running HEAD (r7968) svnserve and client on Windows:

create empty repo
check it out

copy lots of files into the root wc folder (no subdirs)
    (I used the files -- no subdirs -- from Apache's docs/manual
     directory and apr-iconv's ccs directory)

svn add *
svn commit
svn co to a secondary wc for later use
svn del *
svn commit -- without the above patch, both the client and the
               server memory grow to huge amounts; with the
               patch the client stays steady but the server still

cd to secondary wc
svn up -- the client memory grows to huge amounts
