As long as it properly fixes the testcase added with this patch, I really don't mind a better
fix.

Normally you get in this state before starting the application that uses Apr; not from inside
the application (see the original thread from November 2009). So getting in the error state
is not an application error!
But reproducing it that way would require a more extensive test.
