Bug #26393 Segfault during request shutdown in _oci_close_session() (oci8.c:2443)

Problem Description: On some HTML outputs, the page code stops unexpectedly. There does not appear to be any real reason for halting the execution - it stops generating code many times - midway through displaying a record (1 HTML table row). For example if I have a query that shows which people bought widget "a" in the past month - the output might be ok. Use the same script and show which people bought widget "b" - the script might stop 3/4 of the way down the page mid-record. One thing that is consistent - is that it will always stop in the same place. 2 days later, Widget "b" output might be fine - displaying Widget "a" is now a problem. 

Reproduce code:
I use object-oriented code to do the database activities - example:
$db = new myDB ($db1);

In the db.class file, I have functions like this:

function connect ()
   $conn = ocilogon ($this->username, $this->password,
   $this->conn = $conn;


function query ($sql)
   $this->stmt = @ociparse ($this->conn, $sql);

   if (!$this->stmt) {
      return false;
   else {
      @ociexecute($this->stmt, OCI_DEFAULT);

As I said before, I do not use persistent connections because I have several different database instances I connect to based on the type of information requested. 

Expected result:
I am hoping to see complete HTML outputs!

Actual result:

Oops..I meant the Open reports.. :)
See bug #24531 which has some patch in it.
Try the patch..

User reported that patch produced exact same backtrace as before. (PLEASE don't add that same bt anymore..)

 [2003-12-19 12:18 UTC]
yes, there is some troubles with thread safety in PHP_4_3 branch.
I'll ask Harald to port his changes from HEAD one more time.
could you, please, try latest PHP5 snapshot? it should be fixed there.

Please try using this CVS snapshot:
For Windows:

With the testing so far - PHP 5 installation appears to fix the problem.
 [2004-01-15 08:32 UTC]
ok, I'll try to make it work with 4.3.x soon.
 [2004-08-22 08:17 UTC] Troy dot Tinnes at motorola dot com
PHP 5 reduces the occurance of the problem - but problem still persists
