Thanks for the link.  We had a lengthy discussion about the mod_dav's
memory usage during PROPFIND requests in svn-dev@ [1].

However, the problem I described in this thread is different, and it just
happens to have the same visible consequence.

What is probably more important, the dav_send_one_response() function
that has the flaw (see the proposed patch) *just* got promoted into a public
API, and will become the part of the next 2.4.x release [2].  So I prepared
the patch, assuming that it would be better to fix this before it becomes
public.
