This is happening with a script that takes a http POST file upload.  It then inserts the uploaded file into a SQL database using the ADOdb abstraction layer.  This project is over 40,000 lines, so it is difficult to rip one page out of it.  I try to get this into a reasonablely small packaged script later.

Here is the script:
(again, much of it won't make sense since much of the stuff is done outside this file.)

This happens everytime using:
Server version: Apache/2.0.45-dev
Server built:   Mar  8 2003 14:55:15

And PHP Snaps from:
2003-03-08 06:30
2003-05-04 21:30 (newest one)(and --enable-debug)

After starting httpd in GDB using httpd -X -k start, 
and as soon as I visit this page and upload any file, 
I get my segfault. I do not get it by just visiting the page by itself, without any upload POSTs.

Here is a full backtrace:

...continued execute....

I noticed a simular backtrace in bug #20388 and they suggested trying to catch this in Xdebug ( ) if i was entering a recursive function calling loop.  Loading this made no difference for me.

It looks like it was a bug inside a while loop deep inside some of my code.

Still. Not cool that it was able to kill PHP like that.
