svn_client operations start failing - unable to resolve host name

I'm in the process of making some updates to a FUSE svnfs, and while the process is merrily chugging away pulling file information, it starts getting lots of errors from the svn_client commands (not just the one below, but that's an example):
DEBUG :  svnclient_cache(): svn_client_cat(), err->message='OPTIONS of '<<<pathname removed>>>': Could not resolve hostname `<<<host name removed>>>': Host not found (<<<host name removed>>>)' err->apr_err=175002,0x2ab9a 'RA layer request failed'
There is nothing of note configured related to proxies, or anything. As mentioned above, the operations are performing correctly for a while, then stop, and no further operations succeed until the process exits and is restarted. My process seems to behaving well from a memory perspective, and static analysis tools are coming up clean.
I'm suspecting that something is getting confused in the internal state of the SVN client libraries.
Any suggestions on where to look further, or what might be the problem?
(I'm using the 1.6.18 client libraries from wanDisco, compiled for OSX -- I have been unable to get locally compiled and working copies of the SVN libraries myself when trying to compile from source, so I have no easy way to debug through the SVN libraries)
Thanks for any ideas anyone might have,
