I did not have time to fully test this, but it appers that if a PHP script tries to access a MySQL server that is not running, yet still has a control socket (Say the mysqld crashed), PHP will segfault.

I've come to this assumption after spending a considerable amount of time trying to find out why PHP was segfaulting.
After running out of ideas, I looked at the mysql server and found that it was not running. When I restarted mysql, it complained about the unix domain socket still existing.
