I know now why this crash happens and why it doesn't crash with an 1.2.0
client but only with an 1.2.1 client:

in libsvn_ra_dav/session.c, function svn_ra_dav__lock(), line 1128

       err = shim_svn_ra_dav__lock(session, &lock, path, comment,
                                   force, *revnum, iterpool);

after this, err->apr_err is SVN_ERR_RA_DAV_REQUEST_FAILED even though
the authentication failed (as you mentioned in your previous mail, "the
  LOCK method is flatly disallowed by apache's authorization modules").

Then later in line 1152:
   return svn_ra_dav__maybe_store_auth_info_after_result(ret_err, ras);

tries to save the authentication data which isn't available! The
function svn_ra_dav__maybe_store_auth_info_after_result() itself tries
to prevent that by checking the error code against
SVN_ERR_RA_NOT_AUTHORIZED, but the error code is

I found this by comparing the 1.2.0 tag against the 1.2.1 tag (where the
crash happens).

I don't know why it doesn't crash when you try it with HEAD, I haven't
checked the HEAD code so it might have been fixed already.
