I think a cast to size_t in that line is unnecesary (the result of
the pointer subtraction is integral).  But I just realized that
there's another strong reason to just remove error_str and time_str:
the fact that the structure is over 8KB basically guarantees that
the apr_palloc code will have to malloc a new block from the system
free list.

Later today I'll post a new patch that turns error_str and time_str
into char*.
