If I may add some comments about this:
the same crash happens in TortoiseSVN as sent in crashreports indicate.
 From what I could gather from the crashreports so far is that the crash
happens when the pool gets cleaned up, and only if the
svn_client_status() call gets interrupted by the cancel callback.
It happens almost every time if I set the cancel flag even before I call
svn_client_status() (which means the very first cancel callback will
stop the function).
I haven't had the time to look closer at this issue though - I know I
should have since about 80% of the crashreports coming in for version
1.4.0 are about this issue.
