If it is core dumping, then it is likely a problem down at the compiled level.
It is very hard to get pure python to core dump as references are not manually
So it is either at the SVN level, or in the python bindings around it.
I don't know python-svn so we'll probably have to wait until Jelmer comments.
But there should be some python-svn sanity checking that you could do. Something
that would look like:
python -c "from svn import core, client; pool = core.Pool(); \
ctx = client.create_context(pool); print client.__path__"
That would at least be a starting to see if the bindings can be loaded, etc.
