Looks like this issue was fixed in apr_dbd, but not in apr_crypto. I've ported the fix across.

I think we were getting away with this because httpd initialises twice. The first time it
fails, but it doesn't matter because we initialise a second time, at which point the driver
is already initialised and correctly returned from the driver list, and so works. It's now
fixed and the tests pass.

I've backported both fixes to apr-util v1.4, and will reroll the v1.4.2 release. Can you verify
that these changes seem sensible?
