PHP 3.0.13-dev, Apache 1.3.10-dev, MySQL support configured.
If a PHP file uses virtual() to include another via a subrequest,
it will either throw an error ('Cannot include a PHP file') or else
segfault.  (The behaviour depends upon how PHP file recognition
is configured; I have a fix.)

Here is a backtrace from the core file:
