I think the hex values here may be truncated; this is a 64-bit compile, and
those are 32 bits long.

I've now compiled a debug version and I attached Visual Studio to svnserve
to see what happens. The stack trace looked similar, except there's an extra
8 digits after each hex value which has non-zero numbers.

In debug mode, I get an assertion fail for _CrtIsValidHeapPointer, which
occurs due to this attempt to free memory:


on line 256 of plugins\db_berkeley.c in Cyrus SASL code. I've now found that
if I remove this line, then the problem disappears, and svnserve works fine
- though obviously this probably results in a memory leak!

I'm considering this solved for me now. I've tried to measure the memory
leak, and it seems each check out / commit leaks ~8KB, which is small enough
to not worry me, especially as I'll be rebooting the computer svnserve is on
