Pierre noticed svn segfaulting during db-update.

Looking into dmesg, I saw that both svn and bsdtar segfaulted 10 to 20
times a week over the past 4 weeks (logs don't go back further than
that). A bsdtar segfault looks like a likely cause of the above issues.

I updated the kernel from to on both gerolde and
gudrun (.3 and .4 include a huge number of bugfixes) and rebooted. We'll
need to watch if the segfaults still occur.
