The txn_dir_cache gets cleared when the pool associated with the
txn_root is cleared and so the problem only occurs when the server holds
a root open for long enough: the txn_root used to build the transaction
has to remain open when the transaction is committed.  svnserve and
ra_local both do this and show the problem but for apache/mod_dav_svn it
depends on exactly when apache clears the request pool between requests.

  1. client sends MKCOL
  2. apache process MKCOL and populates txn_dir_cache
  3. apache sends MKCOL response
  4. apache clears MKCOL request pool
  5. client sends MERGE
  6. apache process MERGE

5 can happen before 4 since two processes are involved but can 6 happen
before 4?  I've not seen it happen with the worker MPM but I'm not
familiar with all the MPMs.
