The FastCGI process dies (SIGSEGV) when the HTTP client aborts the connection, but PHP wants to echo() more. The ignore_user_abort() state doesn't matter, PHP dies anyway. See the code below.

To reproduce it, run wget http://.../code_below.php, and abort wget with Ctrl-<C>. See the Apache error log for the error message.

I think this is a serious bug that prevents normal use of PHP FastCGI.

Reproduce code:
# PHP 5.1.4 and PHP 4.3.10 are both affected with Apache 1.3.33 + FastCGI
# vvv from Apache error log:
# [Sat Aug 12 15:50:40 2006] [warn] FastCGI: (dynamic) server "/foo/php-cgi" (pid 3279) terminated due to uncaught signal '11' (Segmentation fault)
# [Sat Aug 12 15:50:40 2006] [warn] FastCGI: (dynamic) server "/foo/php-cgi" restarted (pid 3284)
function foo() {
#ignore_user_abort(FALSE); # Dat: this doesn't help either
# phpinfo(); exit;
$A.=$A; $A.=$A; $A.=$A; $A.=$A; $A.=$A; $A.=$A;
for ($I=1; $I<1000; $I++) {
  echo $str;
  #sleep(1); # this doesn't prevent the bug, only delays it

Expected result:
The PHP FastCGI process should continue running and wait for more requests.

Actual result:
The PHP FastCGI process dies with SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault, signal 11).
