I don't have specific to fix bug that didn't happen. But if we got one
we have two directions:
- Do not release RA session back to pool in specific case where we get it broken
- Make RA session more resilent to errors. There is no reason why
ra_svn cannot reconnect after TCP connection times out or something.

Current implementation tracks last time when session was used and do
not reuse RA sessions that was inactive for 5 minutes.
