Calling the PDO:errorInfo() after successful query execution might seem a little useless but it really shouldn't crash the process.

I tracked down the problem with valgrind (on a debian box) and I'm pasting the partial output here:

==2622== Process terminating with default action of signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
==2622==  Access not within mapped region at address 0x0
==2622==    at 0x1B9057F8: strlen (mac_replace_strmem.c:189)

==2622==    by 0x83291C9: main (php_cli.c:1039)

I'm not very good with C but I was able to alter the behavior to be the same (I believe) as with PgSQL driver with the following patch:

+       if (einfo->dberr == 0) {
+               return 1;
+       }
        spprintf(&message, 0, "%s [%d] (severity %d) [%s]",
                msg, einfo->dberr, einfo->severity, stmt ? stmt->active_query_string : "");

Reproduce code:

$pdo = new PDO(...);


Expected result:
array(1) {
  string(0) ""

Actual result:
zsh: bus error  /usr/local/bin/php dblib.php
