This is a double-free in the Subversion bindings build against Perl
5.10.0. It doesn't have anything to do with Subversion per se; Perl
5.10.0 included a lot of changes and the SWIG bindings haven't been
updated. The Subversion bindings work fine when built with Perl 5.8.9,
however, and is the workaround I personally have to use.

At some point, I'll revive my perl_bindings_improvements branch and fix
this (as well as lots of other limitations).
