I've reported the book issue to the svn guys. I think the book examples
are wrong.

Of course, TSVN should not segfault. The problem is that it's very hard
to detect corrupted log cache files.

Did it just crash or did you get the cache to get corrupted again with
that version? My change in r12927 should reduce the risk of the cache
getting corrupted a lot.
