$doc = new DOMDocument('1.0','utf-8') crash

Reproduce code:
There is a short example in the help which crashes the whole PHP processing at the first row. 

Example 1. Creating a Document

$doc = DOMDocument::loadHTML("<html><body>Test<br></body></html>");
echo $doc->saveHTML();

$doc = new DOMDocument();
echo $doc->saveHTML();

Expected result:
just work properly

Actual result:
I have used the PHP 5.1.6 release (installed with compiled Windows Binaries) with Apache 2.2.3, debugging with Komodo 3.5. At the mentioned line the debug process was broken.

Works perfectly fine here.

>At the mentioned line the debug process was broken.
What does this mean and why do you call this "crash"?

Sorry, I'm quite new in PHP debugging. So this is the correct error message, I received in the log file after running this short php code. Could you help me, what does this 'zend.ze1_compatibility_mode' mean, and what shell I do to solve this problem? Thanks.

   $doc = new DOMDocument('1.0');

OK, I`ve managed the problem whith switching 
zend.ze1_compatibility_mode = Off 
in my php.ini.

It was On before. 

I don`t know if that is a problem or not, but I can now keep going with my work. 
Any way thank you for the support. By.
