It was svn that crashed. I was running it in zsh, which trapped the
segfault and printed this:
  zsh: segmentation fault (core dumped)

Usually, zsh prints the failed command at the end of that message,
as in this session:
  $bash -c 'inf() { inf; }; inf'
  zsh: segmentation fault (core dumped) bash -c 'inf() { inf; }; inf'
but in this case it did not, and the omission does make the message
potentially confusing. But the stackdump contains:
  program=C:\cygwin-lmi\bin\svn.exe, pid 1736, thread main
so it's surely svn that crashed.
