I'm not sure but the following may work:

Compile subversion from source containing debug information. I use:
./configure CXXFLAGS="-O0 -g" --enable-maintainer-mode --enable-debug

I assume mod_dav_svn is directly started from apache, right? In this
case please start apache manually with valgrind, which is a memory
valgrind --leak-check=full --show-reachable=yes --trace-children=yes apache --log-file=log.file

Please note that valgrind makes apache slower by at least factor 10.
Nevertheless checking out a very small part of the repository should
probably show the problem.

I assume that the log file log.file.<pid> will be very very large.
Either make this file somewhere available or extract the first
Subversion related problems and send it to this list.

PS: IIRC someone mentioned that if valgrind will be used also the apr
library which is a dependency of subversion should be compiled with
debug information. I'm not sure about this.
