Using recent PHP5.1 CVS snapshots on Win32, Apache2 crashes when a .php file is set as an ErrorDocument in .htaccess.

There are similiar bugs (21074, 19793) that are marked closed.

This was working with snapshots from a few weeks ago.

Reproduce code:
ErrorDocument 404 /error.php?status=404

die( "File Not Found!" );

Expected result:
File Not Found!

Actual result:
Apache2 crashes.

Tested on 5.0.3 release and it works fine. Some kind of regression between 5.0.3 and 5.1CVS.

This only seems to happen in Win32, works fine under our BSD boxes.

Windows XP SP2, Apache 2/2.0.54, PHP 5.1.0-dev (built: Aug 3 2005 20:36:22).

Changing my error document to anything other than a PHP file works (e.g., ErrorDocument error.html or /cgi-bin/

How have you enabled PHP in the httpd.conf file? (what lines did you add there to enable it..)

 [2005-08-04 01:37 UTC] php dot net at sharpdreams dot com
LoadModule php5_module "C:/www/apache2/PHP5-1/php5apache2.dll"
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
PHPIniDir "C:/www/apache2/php5-1"

What do you get in the apache error_log when this problem happens? Are you sure it really crashes..?

 [2005-08-04 18:45 UTC] php dot net at sharpdreams dot com
There is no entry in either error_log or access_log (I presume it crashes before logging). If I turn on the rewriting log, I can see the request getting rewritten until it hits /error.php. I know it crashes because it pops u the Visual Studio debuger.

It crashes if ErrorDocument refers to a PHP file.
Anything else and it works fine.
 [2005-08-14 16:14 UTC]
It happens on Linux too if the child hasn't done any PHP requests yet.

 [2005-08-17 09:59 UTC]
This happens if PHP has not done any requests -> it has not been initialized properly -> as it's not initialized it's pretty futile to try to execute a script blindly like it is done here:


See also the earlier block between lines 529-542
where parent_req is set.

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

Snapshots of the sources are packaged every three hours; this change
will be in the next snapshot. You can grab the snapshot at
