Yep, it's supposed to be the same. I'll have a look.

are you using serf 0.2 (released a few days ago)? There are a few changes in
this later version to will make subversion + ra_serf more stable. If you took
serf from the dependencies tarball this explains why those segfaults are solved
in rc11.

The new serf support in subversion is still considered experimental. This means
that a) there are known issues, b) in general svn+serf crashes or aborts more
than svn+neon and c) some features are missing.

We need your feedback though, as the goal is to remove the 'experimental' flag
in the next version.

thanks, Lieven
