$subrequest->DESTROY calls ap_destroy_sub_req(r)

the bug was in calling it twice, once directly and once more indirectly. 
But the problem is that it didn't affect the current request, but some 
other specific request later on, so if it wasn't for Joe, I'd have lost a 
way more hair than I did so far. I suppose that double call was corrupting 
some memory, but it wasn't visible right away. Is it possible for 
ap_destroy_sub_req(r) to somehow protect from this kind of problem? I 
suppose that's not quite possible.

I'll try to reproduce it now.
