Description:
------------
I have a not-so-small script (20k LOC) and there is a problem during some extensive operations in it: a crash. I tried to find out which part of my program could cause it (tried to comment out some fragments of code etc - but the code isn't very simple, so I couldn't find a fragment possibly related to the crash).

I have 3 backtraces, with PHP compiled with -debug (Gentoo USE flag). When compiled with debug, the issue doesn't persist.

I don't know how should I debug the problem - if I can do something to help you fix it - I will.

Actual result:
--------------

Please take a look at my original report - I was unable to extract a simple fragment which is causing the problem. Yet I'm still able to debug the issue in some other way.

One thing is worth noting: I'm almost sure it's something withe the new Zend MM introduced in some recent version of PHP. This crash didn't happen earlier (I tested it again with older version just to make sure), and with debug build it also does not happen.
 [2008-02-20 14:50 UTC] dmitry@php.net
It is not possible to reproduce and fix the bug, without "bad" code.
 [2008-02-23 12:42 UTC] phajdan dot jr at gmail dot com
Well, I wrote this earlier: I couldn't reduce the set of failing code enough to be usable. I tried again. At some point the problem disappears. It seems to be caused by a big amount of allocation/deallocation, so would be difficult to reproduce in a short script.

Please note that the bug has been *introduced* with Zend MM. In earlier versions of PHP it's just not present. That may help finding the cause.

I can also try to help reproduce the issue some other way, if you can provide me with some instructions or directions.

One basic thing missing from this report: Your configure line.
And no, we're not interested in some Gentoo way of building PHP, we only support "our" way: ./configure <options> && make :)

Here it is, as reported by phpinfo().

Another thing: Do you load any shared extensions in your php.ini?

I get the same error on PHP 5.2.5, 5.2.6, and the latest CVS snapshot.
