Bug #39640 Segfault with "Allowed memory size exhausted"
Submitted: 2006-11-26 18:55 UTC Modified: 2006-12-01 13:55 UTC
From: phpbugs at thequod dot de Assigned: dmitry (profile)
Status: Closed Package: Reproducible crash
PHP Version: 5CVS-2006-11-26 (CVS) OS: Ubuntu Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID: None
 [2006-11-26 18:55 UTC] phpbugs at thequod dot de
If the memory limit gets exhausted in a line like:
        $a = new stdClass;
PHP segfaults during shutdown.

Reproduce code:

$o = new stdClass;

$i = 0;
while( ++$i )
        $a = new stdClass;
        $a->foo = rand(1000, 9999);
        $a->bar = rand(1000, 9999);
        $o->a[$i] = $a;

Expected result:
No segmentation fault.

Actual result:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes 
exhausted (tried to allocate 40 bytes) 
in /X/memory_usage1.php on line 8

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

There's only a sqlite related fix, if I do "cvs diff"?!

Is your PHP build with --enable-debug? If it is on out-of-
memory error PHP dies with a segv.
 [2006-11-27 22:06 UTC] phpbugs at thequod dot de
No debug build.

It does not happen always, only if the memory gets 
exhausted in line 8 ("$a = new stdClass;"), not if it gets 
exhausted in a line like "$a->foo = rand(1000, 9999);".

Here's a backtrace from CLI:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Thanks for the last hint, now I can replicate it. 
It happens when an object is not initialized properly (because of the memory limit).
Please give me some time, I'll try to find a solution..
 [2006-11-28 10:26 UTC]
Reassigned to Dmitry, he said he'll take a look at it along with other memory manager related problems.
 [2006-12-01 13:55 UTC]
Fixed in CVS HEAD and PHP_5_2.
