Yup.  Adler mentioned here on-list that there was a memory leak
when using the decompression routines.  I'm wondering if that has
something to do with this vulnerability.  

But, yes, I'd say mod_deflate wouldn't be affected unless/until
we add input-filtering support.  (I think SVN might like this
at some point.)  -- justin
