PHP 5.0.0 crashes when dividing 0 - using bcdiv() - by any number, but with all of the previous versions of PHP the function returned 0. I am using the PHP-5.0.0-zip-Package on Windows XP with Apache 2.0.50 ... PHP is installed as a module and resetting the php.ini to it's original didn't solve the problem.

Reproduce code:

Expected result:
The function should just return the integer 0.

Actual result:
PHP crashes

Pls, try to run the same code in console, using PHP-CLI (php.exe).
I can't reproduce it under Win2k & Linux.
