Sorry, but I've lost what problem we're trying to solve now? Why just
do not add call to svn_dso_initialize2() (or svn_cmdline_init()) in
our testsuite and move forward?

The mod_dav_svn puts init_dso() registers callback with highest
priority and has comment explaining the problem:
/* This isn't ideal, we're not actually being called before any
pool is created, but we are being called before the server or
request pools are created, which is probably good enough for
98% of cases. */
