Your distribution is using the construct END { $global_destroy = 1 } in [1], which is not thread safe as described here [2]. Please consider switching to, which has both an XS and a PurePerl variant, both of which are tested to behave correctly under ithreads. Cheers [1] [2]

Thank you for your report, but this is just a redistribution of the SVN Perl bindings. No work is done here. Issues should be reported to the Subversion project. Because bugs reported to Subversion must be reported in person and shepherded through their process, we cannot just forward the report upstream. Sorry for the inconvenience.
re-opening to track the ongoing issue; please close when SVN is fixed upstream.
Was this ever reported upstream?  It is very important that you do so else it will not get fixed.  Due to SVN's bug reporting policies, we cannot report and shepherd SVN bugs for you.

As for holding this open, the proper place to track bugs in Subversion's Perl bindings is in the Subversion bug tracker.  The proper place to add tests is also in the Subversion project.  It doesn't make sense to hold open SVN bugs in Alien::SVN's tracker just because it was reported to us, we'd wind up duplicating everything.

While I understand this issue is not resolved, reporting and tracking it here isn't going to get it resolved.  I'm again rejecting this ticket.
