This commit is a consequence of lundblad 'complaining' about the fact
that I left a buffer allocated in libsvn_subr/subst.c. That buffer was
about the same size. So, I looked where else the buffer was allocated
and disposed of, moving the allocation to a subpool if it wasn't
already.

No, I didn't modify any of those.
