I've update phpmyadmin to 2.7.0 and php to 4.4.1 , and the apache  crashes with follow logs:
[Mon Dec 05 20:27:22 2005] [notice] child pid 19823 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
[Mon Dec 05 20:27:23 2005] [notice] child pid 17555 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
[Mon Dec 05 20:27:24 2005] [notice] child pid 17553 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
(three times per get sql.php script)

Below of gdb core with php-cli, replace the form values with inserted vars obtain the same error:

Reproduce code:
phpmyadmin-2.7.0/sql.php , 4.1.15-standard-log , libmysql client version 12.

Expected result:
In normal situation, the problem happens when browse the data of  any table or only invocate sql.php (any SQL statement) with Zero size reply. In fact, i did try to send mailformed SQL sintax (bad sql command or incorrect table/fields name), and the script responses the mailformed sql send, so the problem happens after the SQL validation.

Actual result:
oot@fish:/usr/local/apache2/holding/php-my-admin#php -e sql2.php

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a short but complete example script to be able to reproduce
this bug ourselves. 

A proper reproducing script starts with <?php and ends with ?>,
is max. 10-20 lines long and does not require any external 
resources such as databases, etc.

If possible, make the script source available online and provide
an URL to it here. Try to avoid embedding huge scripts into the report.

Just see the sql.php script into phpmyadmin > 2.6.x , in my situation uses  2.7.0 version . Anothe interesting point says that sql.php don't crashes if use another sql different of SELECT, so the problem maybe involves the mysql_fetch_* structure.

The platform is sun4u 32bits with solaris8 and many GNU tools installed. The imap c-client library were made with/out SSL support and the error are the same.

I'm sure IMAP is not required to get the GDB backrace.
 [2005-12-13 16:13 UTC] edo at edo dot cl
Dear tony, but i need to build PHP with support for c-client (horde) and support for phpmyadmin in the same machine, in 4.4.1 don't have this problem at build with this version or previus c-client libs, 

Thanks in advance
 [2005-12-13 16:23 UTC]
You don't need IMAP to reproduce the issue and get the backtrace.
