I traced it back to BeOS' getpwnam() which is called in the
apr_uid_homepath_get(). This always returns NULL - BeOS is essentially
a single-user system.

I sent an email to the APR-dev mailing list because it could be fixed
for BeOS by using getpwuid(0) instead (the current user on BeOS is
essentially always 0). I'm awaiting their response.

svn now no longer crashes, but I still have to enter my password. For
svn-0.15, this wasn't needed. I have .svn/auth/password and .svn/auth/
username files; I use a different username for my checkins. The
current svn apparently defaults to $USER and doesn't read those files?
