I sympathize, but i really don't think this patch is appropriate for the
SVN code. The thing to do is to figure out if a) we're using APR
incorrectly, b) there's actually a bug _in_ apr, or c) there's a bug in
the way APR was built on your system.

Note that I'm not saying your problem isn't real or shouldn't be fixed,
just that this isn't the way to fix it in the mainstream code.
