Found where the problem is. PerlIOApache_write() mistakenly called
Perl_croak() with a stringified apr_status_t instead of using
MP_RUN_CROAK() (which makes a proper APR::Error object to croak with)
like PerlIOApache_flush() does.

The attached patch fixes this.

I will apply it soon unless anyone knows of any reason why
PerlIOApache_write() should be different.
