xml_parse cause segmentation fault when xml_set_object called from class member function (as showed in example below). When xml_set_object called from class constructor or from "parse" class method then things going ok, but when xml_set_object placed in "init" class method then things going wrong.

Reproduce code:

class sxml {
    var $handle;

    function start_elem($parser,$name,$attribs) {
	print "$name ";
        foreach($attribs as $key => $value) {
            print "$key = $value ";
        print "\n";

    function end_elem()

    function init() {
        $this->handle = xml_parser_create("ISO-8859-1");
        xml_set_object($this->handle, $this);

    function release() {

    function parse($source) {
	xml_parse($this->handle, $source);


$source = '<OBJECT>

$obj = new sxml;


Expected result:

Actual result:
Segmentation fault
