SVN authz segfaults

This one has me thoroughly confused. SVN (via Apache) works perfectly right up until I add the following directive to my Apache configuration file: "AuthzSVNAccessFile /var/lib/svn/svn-authz.conf". Once that's there, I start getting random crashes on checkout and update.

The SVN client dumps out with the following error:
svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/sentinel/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: REPORT of '/svn/sentinel/!svn/vcc/default': Could not read chunk size: connection was closed by server ( http://sombrero.ridgetop-group.local )

In my Apache logs all I get is:
[ Tue Jan 13 15:31:58 2009] [notice] child pid 2338 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

My statistically insignificant tests just now put this error at occurring 5 out of 8 attempts when authz is enabled.

This is on an Ubuntu 8.04.1 server running SVN 1.4.6dfsg1-2ubuntu1 and Apache 2.2.8-1ubuntu0.3.

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this or (more importantly) how to fix it? I've been googling around but haven't yet figured out how to get a backtrace of this or run Apache under gdb.
