The real fix is to initialize ap_max_mem_free to
APR_ALLOCATOR_MAX_FREE_UNLIMITED during the pre_config hook in each of
the MPMs.  Unless there are any objections, I will check this in
shortly.  I assume that this also needs to be back ported to httpd-2.0.

The default value being the equivalent of unlimited?

It seems like not resetting the max mem free on the allocator on
reload is a bug.  So +1.
