Bug #27535 Objects pointing to each other cause Apache to crash
Submitted: 2004-03-09 01:50 UTC Modified: 2004-03-11 09:57 UTC
From: random at sinfusion dot com Assigned: andi
Status: Closed Package: Scripting Engine problem
PHP Version: 5CVS-2004-03-09 OS: *
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2004-03-09 01:50 UTC] random at sinfusion dot com
Description:
------------
Originally this was happening at the end of PEAR::Auth's constructor when it points it's storage object's '_auth_obj' variable to itself ($this).  I've created a simpler example that still crashes either Apache 1.3.29 or 2.0.48, but in the simpler case it doesn't crash Apache until the second time you run the script.

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php

class Class1
{
    var $_Class2_obj;
}

class Class2
{
    var $storage = '';

    function Class2()
    {
        $this->storage = new Class1();

        $this->storage->_Class2_obj = $this;
    }
}

$foo = new Class2();

?>

Expected result:
----------------
No output, but no crash either.

Actual result:
--------------
Apache crashes

It doesn't crash for me (in debug mode), but it does generate the warning:

/dat/dev/php/php-5.0dev/Zend/zend_hash.c(504) : ht=0x42be32f0 is being destroyed

This is the same problem it seems as:
