The following code segfaults.

Reproduce code:
class FIIFO {

	public function __construct() {
		throw new Exception;


class hariCow extends FIIFO {

	public function __construct() {
		try {
		} catch(Exception $e) {
	public function __toString() {
		return "Rusticus in asino sedet.";


$db = new hariCow;

echo $db;

Expected result:
No segfault but something like that:

Rusticus in asino sedet.

Actual result:
FATAL:  erealloc():  Unable to allocate 1515872257 bytes

In fact, this code segfault if you add :

"var_dump($db);" before "echo $db;"

Without the var_dump, "echo $db;" prints nothing.

Can't reproduce the segfault.
It doesn't output anything, but doesn't segfault too.

It still segfaults here...
 [2005-01-13 02:26 UTC]
Seems to be fixed, as I can't reproduce it with both 5* CVS snapshots.
Please, try latest snapshot.
