Thanks Yann!

I had partial success with '--enable-pool-debug=yes' and
'--enable-pool-debug=verbose'. Then I ran into something else regarding
apr-util. I see there are pre-processor conditions based on APR_POOL_DEBUG.

In apr_bucket_alloc_create():

    /* may be NULL for debug mode. */
    if (allocator == NULL) {
        if (apr_allocator_create(&allocator) != APR_SUCCESS) {
            apr_abortfunc_t fn = apr_pool_abort_get(p);
            if (fn)

Indeed it segfaults in allocator_alloc() because the allocator is null.

I'll try with just the $CFLAGS you suggested, Yann, and see if I can
find the double free without APR_POOL_DEBUG code. Because building
apr-utils will not be as easy apr. I've been using debian libs and -dev
pkgs, which up until now have been all I needed. Time to dive deeper I

Thanks again,
