When oci8.default_prefetch is set to anything but zero, executing a SQL statement that uses a dbLink and only returns a single row causes Apache to seg fault.  If oci8.default_prefetch is set to zero then it works fine.  This problem only seems to occur if you do a SELECT *.  If you identify the exact columns to select then it works fine.  Also, the same statement works fine, even with SELECT *, if you connect to the database directly.  It only fails if accessing through a dbLink.

Reproduce code:
$sql = "
    table_id = $some_id
$stmt = ociparse($conn, $sql);
ociexecute($stmt, OCI_DEFAULT);
ocifetchinto($stmt, $row, OCI_ASSOC);

Expected result:
$row is a populated associative array with all the columns from the table row requested.

Actual result:
Apache seg faults immediately after the ociexecute() call.

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a backtrace to see what is happening behind the scenes. To
find out how to generate a backtrace, please read for *NIX and for Win32

Once you have generated a backtrace, please submit it to this bug
report and change the status back to "Open". Thank you for helping
us make PHP better.

Backtrace already provided.
 [2006-03-07 08:38 UTC]
Disable all zend_extensions and try again.
 [2006-03-07 18:52 UTC] jreed at myers dot com
Same result with no Zend extensions.  I am the only one with Zend extensions installed.  Others who never installed Zend have the same problem.
 [2006-03-07 20:42 UTC] jreed at myers dot com
Here's the backtrace with all Zend extensions removed/turned off:

That stack trace is pretty deep in Oracle.  In case this problem needs to be reported to them, what is the version
of the Oracle client libraries that PHP is linked with?  What is the Oracle server version?  How are you creating the DB link?
 [2006-03-08 19:05 UTC] jreed at myers dot com
As stated previously, Oracle Instant Client v10.2.  Server version is 10.2 with dbLink v10.2 which links to a database v8i.

To create the dblink:
create database link linkname connect to username identified by password using databasename;
 [2006-03-10 05:57 UTC] cjbj at hotmail dot com
I'd contact Oracle Support about this.   Give them the stack trace.  There seems to be a couple of recent 10.2 reports to Oracle with a similar trace.
 [2006-03-10 18:39 UTC] jreed at myers dot com
The same query works just fine when I run it within SQL*Plus.  And the query works fine without the oci8.default_prefetch turned on.  So this clearly leads to a problem with the PHP OCI8 driver.
 [2006-03-12 09:04 UTC]
>The same query works just fine when I run it within SQL*Plus.
Sure. Because you don't use prefetching.

>So this clearly leads to a problem with the PHP OCI8 driver.
Please follow the advice from cjbj at hotmail dot com.

I encountered the same issue using OCI8 version 1.2.5 with PHP version 5.2.13. Changing oci8.default_prefetch to zero did fix the problem but was not desirable. I upgraded to OCI8 version 1.4.1 and all was solved. I know this issue is quite old, but am commenting anyway in hopes that I save someone some time troubleshooting.
