I don't know about this leak, but there are plenty other leaks to
examine. I posted a simple formula for one a while back.

If you create tens of thousands of files distributed among 100
directories in a directory tree only two levels deep, svn add, then svn
commit, you will see the server and client grow in size with ra_svn. I
see the same growth in ra_local.

Been like this for quite a while now.
