You've heard correctly that support for files > 2GB is not in APR
0.9.x, and is in APR 1.2.x. Not sure why you're getting a segfault
though. Are you serving your repository with Apache? If so, have you
also recompiled your Apache to use the new APR version? I believe you
need to keep Apache and Subversion in sync with respect to the APR
version they're built with, else weirdness happens.
