That's odd, modperl_perl_global_avcv_clear should not be able to call
itself. It looks like you don't have debugging symbols for mod_perl
itself, could you get that as well, as it would show me a little bit
more as to what's being double-freed, looks like.

Also, you can just try and run your test case with MOD_PERL_TRACE='g' in
your environment ? It turns on global handling debugging output.
error_log would contain information about what is going on in more details.
