You are using apr_bucket_destroy() when apr_bucket_delete() is generally
appropriate.

Using _destroy() in place of _delete() means that adjacent buckets may retain
references to the destroyed bucket, which can lead to memory corruption. 
Fixing this in your test case fixes the crash, so I expect it is the likely
cause, though the test case is too complex to be sure.

Doing a memset() on the data returned by a bucket read has undefined behaviour:
it is const data and you are casting away that const.

If you can come up with a minimal test case which:

a) *does* check return values
b) doesn't deliberately violate API constraints

please re-open.
