The problem is due to double free pointers in send_page() and free_sort_op()
In send_page function, some nodes of so_tree have been free by ch_free and
ber_memfree function. If a client suddenly aborts the connection, free_sort_op
function will be called. In free_sort_op function, tavl_free() will be called
and it try to free the nodes of so_tree. Hoverer, some of nodes had already free
before and segmentation resulted. 

A possible solution is to to check whether it is a paged request in free_sort_op
function. If yes, continuous to free the next node of so_tree but not free
previous node.
