Fixed in subversion a month or two ago, memory mismanagement with maps which showed up on some platforms. Finally showed up reliably on cygwin which gave me the opportunity to debug the hell out of it.

Fix will be in the release queued currently, fixing some other random crashes found recently so the release is slightly delayed.
