I get a segfault while running a script of mine. Here what apache's error.log says:

[Mon Apr  5 13:36:36 2004] [notice] child pid 2072 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

It happens when i call the function 
set_common_vars() which is a method of a class. If i run var_dump($o) ($o being an instance of the class set_common_vars is a member of) the script errors as it should withoot segfaulting. 

The function ist defined as:
    function sets_common_vars() 
        $this->strCat = (isset ($_GET['load']) ? $_GET['load'] : 'homepage');
        $this->strGet = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] . '?' . 'load=' . $strCat;

        return true;

This is very strange. I tried to build up a test-case as i thought it was related to the try {} catch blocks in the contructor, but it wasn't. My test-case did it's work as it was supposed to. I'm not sure what i can do, as the provided information above will most likely not help much tracing the bug to its source. 

As the new object model is based on ZE2 i have classified this as an engine issue.

I got a working (segfaulting) test-case here:

class foo {

    function __construct() {
        $a = 0 ;
        if ($a == 0)   
            throw new Exception ('$a == 0 in foo::_constructor');

    function zar()
        return 0;

    class bar extends foo {
        function __construct()
            try {
            } catch (Exception $e) {
                echo $e->getMessage() . "\n"; 
            return true;

$o  = new bar;

Hope that helps

Please try using this CVS snapshot:
For Windows:

Works fine with latest CVS (both 5.0 & 5.1), outputs "$a == 0 in foo::_constructor".
