I have what appears to be this identical issue running apache 2.2.3-22. I have
a subversion repository that is accessed using mod_dav_svn.

Here is the abbreviated config:

<Location /svn>
    DAV svn
    SVNPath /stats/svn
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "***"
    AuthBasicProvider external
    AuthExternal pwauth
    Require valid-user

Whenever a file is copied to the server (typically via 'svn import' or 'svn
commit' with new file additions) it appears memory is not being freed after the
transfer completes.

This has never caused a crash since there is 4GB of ram and an equivalent swap
partition so I have no core files. Restarting apache when I notice the low
memory condition does free the memory.

If necessary I can force a core of the httpd pid while in the low memory
condition but I would like to avoid if possible since this is a production
machine and the issue is easily reproducible.

B.T.W. I see nothing strange in the logs.
