The code below works fine in 5.1.0b2 for me. In 5.1.0b3 and CVS, however, the code produces an error and segfaults.

In b3/CVS the table is created and the value is inserted.

$db->query('SELECT * FROM foo') returns false and causes the invalid argument error.

$stmt->execute() returns false.

Accessing $stmt->getColumnMeta() causes a segfault.

Throwing a $stmt->fetch() between execute() and getColumnMeta() produces the correct results. (but query() obviously still returns false)

Reproduce code:
header('Content-type: text/plain');

$db = new PDO('mysql:dbname=test;host=localhost','**','**');

$db->query('CREATE TABLE `foo` ( `bar` INT NOT NULL );');
$db->query('INSERT INTO foo VALUES(1)');

var_dump($db->query('SELECT * FROM foo'));

foreach ($db->query('SELECT * FROM foo') as $row) {

$stmt = $db->prepare('SELECT * FROM foo');


Expected result:
object(PDOStatement)#2 (1) {
  string(17) "SELECT * FROM foo"
    [bar] => 1
    [0] => 1
    [native_type] => LONG
    [flags] => Array
            [0] => not_null

    [name] => bar
    [len] => 11
    [precision] => 0
    [pdo_type] => 2

Actual result:

Warning:  Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in test.php on line 10

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
