That wasn't correct.

Here is the real reason why the problem can't be created with a temp pool:

Index: xs/APR/Bucket/APR__Bucket.h
===================================================================
--- xs/APR/Bucket/APR__Bucket.h (revision 123827)
+++ xs/APR/Bucket/APR__Bucket.h (working copy)
@@ -112,8 +112,11 @@
      if (GIMME_V == G_VOID && rc != APR_SUCCESS) {
          modperl_croak(aTHX_ rc, "APR::Bucket::setaside");
      }
-
-    //mpxs_add_pool_magic(b_sv, p_sv);
-
+
+    /* No need to call mpxs_add_pool_magic(b_sv, p_sv); since
+     * pool_bucket_cleanup is called by apr_bucket_pool_make (called
+     * by modperl_bucket_sv_setaside) if the pool goes out of scope,
+     * copying the data to the heap.
+     */
      return rc;
  }

so setaside does not need a special handling. I live the test that would 
have failed if it wasn't for apr internal's backup. so if it ever removed 
the test should catch it.
