Bug in svn_stringbuf_insert and svn_stringbuf_replace

I just spotted this.

svn_stringbuf_insert() contains this:

  temp = apr_pstrndup(str->pool, bytes, count);

That's wrong for an arbitrary array of bytes, because it will stop copying at the first null byte.

Using apr_pmemdup() should fix it.

Same in svn_stringbuf_replace().

Inadequate test coverage. It is tested only with non-zero-length strings of ASCII characters. (Another scenario not tested is inserting a string that overlaps the existing string and starts or ends at the existing string's start or end or end-plus-null.)
