ldap_explode_dn crashes apache if not correct parameter is given to function. This fix to applied ldap.c did not crash anymore:

*** ext/ldap/ldap.c.old 2003-09-13 17:52:40.000000000 +0300
--- ext/ldap/ldap.c     2003-09-13 17:33:09.000000000 +0300
*** 1210,1215 ****
--- 1210,1219 ----

        ldap_value = ldap_explode_dn(Z_STRVAL_PP(dn), Z_LVAL_PP(with_attrib));

+       if (ldap_value == NULL) {
+               RETURN_FALSE;
+       }
        while(ldap_value[i] != NULL) i++;
        count = i;

Reproduce code:
$ret = ldap_explode_dn("6", 0);

if ($ret === false) {
    print "no good";

Expected result:
text "no good" to be displayed

Actual result:
apache crashes with
