Sometimes, some apache process segfault in shutdown_memory_manager. 

Configuration : PHP 5.0.5/Linux/apache2

Reproduce code:
Unable to find the code that generates the segfault (the app is quite large)

Actual result:
Backtrace :

I tried recompiling with enable-debug, and I get "Only variables can be passed by reference" fatal errors in a function call that does not use references :
The function prototype is :
function httpRedirect($url) {

I am unable to reproduce the crash with enable-debug activated.

configure is :
'./configure' '--with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs2' '--with-config-file-path=/etc' '--with-oci8' '--with-curl=/usr/lib' '--with-gd=shared' '--with-jpeg-dir=/usr/lib' '--with-png-dir=/usr/lib' '--with-freetype-dir=/usr/lib' '--enable-gd-native-ttf' '--with-zlib' '--with-mcrypt=/usr/lib' '--with-dom' '--enable-sockets' '--with-gmp=shared' '--without-pear' '--with-mysql=/usr' '--with-mysql-sock=/tmp/mysql.sock' '--with-imagick-gm' '--with-imagick=shared' 'CFLAGS=-O2 -g' '--with-snmp=shared' '--enable-ftp=shared' '--enable-soap=shared' '--enable-debug'

I tried the latest snapshot, but it crashes while trying to load the main php file.

Do you load those shared extensions in your php.ini?
Can you try without them? And what is the shortest possible configure line you can reproduce this with?
 [2005-11-10 13:58 UTC] jfbustarret at tf1 dot fr
With :

I'll try the same with PHP-5.0.5.

Are you able to reproduce it with PHP CLI?
Why are you using those CFLAGS? 
Do you really need both ext/mysql && ext/oci8? If not, please remove at least one of them.
Do you use the new OCI8 (from PECL) or the old one?
 [2005-11-14 11:28 UTC] jfbustarret at tf1 dot fr
> Are you able to reproduce it with PHP CLI?
So far, no crash using CLI.

> Why are you using those CFLAGS?
Legacy shell script... -g -O2 is the default, so CLFAGS is useless.

> Do you really need both ext/mysql && ext/oci8? If not, please remove at least one of them.
Most servers need both. I'll remove ext/mysql & ext/oci8 where I can.

> Do you use the new OCI8 (from PECL) or the old one?
The new one. Some features of the PECL one are very useful.
 [2005-11-14 11:34 UTC] jfbustarret at tf1 dot fr
FYI, I have crashes on a server that loads the oci ext, but does not connect to oracle.

On this server, the crashes were in a template that uses mysql + jpgraph v2 + gd.
 [2005-11-14 11:38 UTC]
What MPM do you use with Apache2?
Are you able to reproduce it with prefork MPM?
 [2005-11-14 11:39 UTC] jfbustarret at tf1 dot fr
We use prefork
 [2005-11-15 11:00 UTC]
Please try make full rebuild (including extensions).

make clean ; make install
 [2005-11-15 11:18 UTC] jfbustarret at tf1 dot fr
Our standard procedure for building PHP is already :
make clean
make install
(we even rm -rf the directory & untar the source package each time)

I am trying to get a new core with 5.0.5/enable-debug & various extensions.
 [2005-11-15 23:01 UTC]
Please try using this CVS snapshot:

We're not interested in 5.0.5, we're interested if this happens with the latest CVS.
 [2005-11-16 16:08 UTC] jfbustarret at tf1 dot fr
I did some extensive tests with 5.1RC.

I did get a few random parsing errors :
#0  0x4070a2ad in yy_push_state (new_state=1) at zend_language_scanner.c:6031
#1  0x4070ac97 in lex_scan (zendlval=0xbf8c5764) at zend_language_scanner.c:4420
#2  0x407105a9 in zendlex (zendlval=0xbf8c5760) at /soft/sources/php/php5-200511160730/Zend/zend_compile.c:3971
#3  0x40709b07 in zendparse () at zend_language_parser.c:2644

Every core I got was on the same template. Most of the time, the template is correctly parsed, and sometimes it crashes (3 crashes in a few thousand compiles, about the same frequency than my 5.0.5 crash).

I'll try to extract the part of the template that crashes and put it online.

configure is the same as the beginning of the ticket, without enable-debug (I'm unable to get core files with enable-debug). No accelerator is used.

I'm having the segfault as well, with PHP 5.1.1/Linux/Apache 
1.3 (also had under Apache 2.0; switched to 1.3 to try to 
replicate more of our non-crashing PHP 4.4 setup from other 

The system is Fedora 2/x86; compiler is GCC 3.3.3.

The segfaulting condition develops after a full day or two 
of running with relatively light load; once it's started, 
all PHP requests seem to segfault this way until Apache is 
restarted. I have not been able to find a way to trigger it 
on command yet.

I am using the APC caching module (3.0.8); will try to 
confirm with it off as well.

# ./configure  --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs --
enable-memory-limit --enable-sysvsem --enable-sysvshm --
with-bz2 --enable-ctype --with-iconv --enable-exif --enable-
gettext --enable-mbstring --enable-shmop --enable-sockets --
with-zlib --with-openssl --with-curl --with-dom --with-dom-
xslt --with-dom-exslt --with-zlib --with-gd --with-mysql=/
usr/local/mysql --with-record --enable-xslt --with-xslt-
sablot --with-readline --with-xmlrpc

Apache 1.3.34 and PHP are compiled with CFLAGS='-g -O2' to 
enable debugging information, but I had the segfaults under 
the defaults as well.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
