Actually, my initial assessment of the issue was incorrect.
It actually looks like it's to do with having the 1.5 version of the library
still loaded in to a long-running apache process (for mod_dav_svn). It then
breaks when one of those apache processes tries to run trac. The trac
process attempted to load one of the svn libraries that's not already loaded
by mod_dav_svn. This fails due to a missing symbol, because it tries to use
the already-loaded 1.5 version of the library with the 1.6 lib it's loading.
The problem was fixed by restarting apache. I don't know if it's worth
reporting a bug about this..
