Description:
------------
PHP segfaults when shutting down.  This appears to be the same symptom as in bug #26384.  I've included a backtrace, and some dumps of what looked like the key structures.

Hope you can help,
Stu

Actual result:

At stack frame #2, I did some printing of the xmlNodePtr node.  I don't know if this is useful or not.

(gdb) print *node->parent->parent
$8 = {_private = 0x864e288, type = XML_ELEMENT_NODE,
  name = 0x84c1250 "\030?d\bicontent", children = 0x84c7418,
  last = 0x864e290, parent = 0x84b2778, next = 0x0, prev = 0x84c11d8,
  doc = 0x850db48, ns = 0x0, content = 0x0, properties = 0x0, nsDef = 0x0,
  psvi = 0x0, line = 0, extra = 0}
(gdb) print *node->parent->parent->parent
$9 = {_private = 0x0, type = XML_ELEMENT_NODE, name = 0x84c1268 "Module",
  children = 0x84c11d8, last = 0x84c73d8, parent = 0x84a68d8,
  next = 0x84c12a8, prev = 0x84ab0b0, doc = 0x850db48, ns = 0x0,
  content = 0x0, properties = 0x84c1218, nsDef = 0x0, psvi = 0x0, line = 0,
  extra = 0}
(gdb) print *node->parent->parent->parent->parent
$10 = {_private = 0x0, type = XML_ELEMENT_NODE, name = 0x84a6918 "Modules",
  children = 0x84ac800, last = 0x84c12a8, parent = 0x850dc48, next = 0x0,
  prev = 0x84b32b8, doc = 0x850db48, ns = 0x0, content = 0x0,
  properties = 0x0, nsDef = 0x0, psvi = 0x0, line = 0, extra = 0}
(gdb) print *node->parent->parent->parent->parent->Parent
There is no member named Parent.
(gdb) print *node->parent->parent->parent->parent->parent
$11 = {_private = 0x0, type = XML_ELEMENT_NODE, name = 0x8304bc8 "XmlOutput",
  children = 0x81e69f8, last = 0x84a68d8, parent = 0x850db48, next = 0x0,
  prev = 0x0, doc = 0x850db48, ns = 0x0, content = 0x0, properties = 0x0,
  nsDef = 0x0, psvi = 0x0, line = 0, extra = 0}

And, from stack frame #1, here's a print of zval * wrapper:

(gdb) print *wrapper
$12 = {value = {lval = 800, dval = 1.3580773101702994e-312, str = {
      val = 0x320 <Address 0x320 out of bounds>, len = 64}, ht = 0x320,
    obj = {ce = 0x320, properties = 0x40}}, type = 112 'p',
  is_ref = 23 '\027', refcount = 2136}

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a short but complete example script to be able to reproduce
this bug ourselves. 

A proper reproducing script starts with <?php and ends with ?>,
is max. 10-20 lines long and does not require any external 
resources such as databases, etc.

If possible, make the script source available online and provide
an URL to it here. Try avoid embedding huge scripts into the report.

Can you also include the libxml and libxslt versions you are using?

Hiya,

Sorry - I've been unable to create a short script to reproduce this fault yet.  Our CMS is a large application which uses DOM extensively.  Trying to find 20 or so lines to re-create the problem is non-trivial.

Can you supply a debugging patch, which will help capture additional information?

libxml is 2.6.9, and libxslt is 1.1.6.

Best regards,
Stu

What does your xslt_process call look like?
No easy way to debug this without a script, but can you try forcing a copy on the document (there's an additional parameter that can be passed to xslt_process to force a doc copy). Not sure what you have for parameters, but try something like:
xslt->process(doc, NULL, NULL, NULL, 1);

See if it still crashes doing that. If it still does and you dont have a reproducing script then you will have to sit down with gdb and try to find where the problem is coming from.

Hiya,

Erm, I'm a bit confused.  xslt isn't an object in PHP 4 ;-)  It sounds like you're talking about the xslt functionality that's new in PHP 5 ;-)

Our xslt_process call looks like this:

$output = xslt_process($this->processor, 'arg:/_xml', 'arg:/xsl', NULL, $arguments);

There's no documented parameter to xslt_process() to force a copy.

If I'm going to 'poke about' with gdb, it'd help if you could point me in the right direction.  The core dump isn't very helpful - if I understand it correctly, it's just saying that the Zend engine is dying after executing the script because something messed up the internal linked lists.  Some sort of patch that will catch the list corruption much closer to where it occurs would really help ;-)

Best regards,
Stu

The crash you get is from domxml, not xslt extension (sablotron), so assumed you were using the libxslt functions. This being the case, without a reproducing script, debugging domxml is extremely difficult as you need to figure out where the issue between the engine, domxml and libxml lies.

I appreciate the need for the smaller reproducing script - but I don't have one yet for you.  I don't know if it will be possible either - Amaxus is a large product that uses XML throughout.

Something is corrupting that list.  A patch that adds code to validate the list, and that makes calls to the list validation function, would help us track down the source of that corruption.  Can you help?

Thanks,
Stu

A reproducing script is necessary. Please dont bother asking about a debugging patch as there are too many factors to even attempt that.
