php crashes if i connect to a closed ODBC pconnect.  I know this is very bad code below, but php should probably not crash.

I reproed this with both 5.1.4 and today's 5.2 snapshot.

Reproduce code:
$mydb = NULL; 
function pdb_Connect()
    global $mydb;
    if($mydb == NULL)
    {  /* To repro, you need to supply a valid DSN and user/pass here. Only crashes with pconnect here, not connect. */                                                                           
      $mydb = odbc_pconnect("YourDSN", "YourUser", "YourPass", SQL_CUR_USE_ODBC) or die(odbc_errormsg() ); 
    return $mydb;
function printPage()
  $mydb = pdb_Connect();
  print "Possibly Crashing now... ";
  $results = odbc_exec($mydb, 'SELECT * FROM _PDB_Access');  

Expected result:
With warnings on, i'd expect something like:

Possibly Crashing now...
Warning: odbc_exec(): supplied argument is not a valid ODBC-Link resource in d:\inetpub\wwwroot\include\test\testcrash.php on line 20

Actual result:
Possibly Crashing now... PHP has encountered an Access Violation at 7C901010

Still occurs in 5.1.6
 [2007-09-25 13:21 UTC] alexandra at zend dot com

There is a simple work-around to make this script work - there is a problem with the fact that you declared the $mydb var global in one function but not the other.
You can change the printPage() function to solve this issue.

function printPage()
    global $mydb;         
  $mydb = pdb_Connect();
  print "Possibly Crashing now... ";
  $results = odbc_exec($mydb, 'SELECT * FROM _PDB_Access');

Possible fix:
 [2008-10-21 11:38 UTC]
Was that fix applied? Does this bug exist in PHP_5_2 branch still? If so, please update the version..
 [2008-10-21 22:32 UTC]
Well, I can't reproduce it.
 [2009-02-17 17:53 UTC] paul at quakenet dot org

I can reproduce this (5.3 branch) and the patch attached does't 
appear to fix this issue.

This issue only seems to occur when returning $mydb. If the 
odbc_pconnect is moved outside of pdb_Connect or the code function 
definition is changed to function &pdb_Connect(), the issue does not 

  $mydb = pdb_Connect();
Output is: resource(5) of type (odbc link persistent)

Changing the code to not return $mydb e.g. call odbc_pconnect within 
printPage, result of the var_dump is: resource(5) of type (Unknown)
