When imploding/joining an array with only "false" in it, 
PHP segfaults (on shutdown?).

I've found this in a more complex use case, where it 
segfaulted during execution, but probably because of this 
root problem.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

The crash can be reproduced "inline", by

$b = trim($b);

after the implode().
