The last two uses are essentially the same.  It's the first which is
wrong, and I advocated a new pool named "ptemp" for that a few months ago. 

The reason the second two uses are consistent is that ptrans is
essentially being used as per-connection data in both cases.  It needs to
be a per-thread thing when you're multithreaded. 

I know I sound like a broken record :) but this is another thing that's
fixed in apache-nspr.  There's a ptemp and a ptrans, and ptrans isn't a
global.  (ptemp doesn't need to be a global either... more cleanup
