It looks like the your patch DID fix the threading problem. But there
is a second problem, a memory leak/double-free with the GOST engine.
There are numerous complaints about it on the mailing list and here's
the ticket: http://rt.openssl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=2598

Defining OPENSSL_NO_GOST for the OpenSSL build makes all the crashes I
see go away. It's avoiding the problem, not fixing it, but I would
think it would be acceptable to disable it until the OpenSSL guys fix
it. I don't know how many TSVN users use the GOST cipher and hash
function, but I doubt it's very many.
