At the PHP command line, when running code using -r, the presence of an extended Exception class will cause a segmentation fault when any Exception is thrown.

Reproduce code:
# no segfault
php -r "throw new Exception();"

# segfault
php -r "class Foo extends Exception {} throw new Exception();"

Expected result:
I expect to see no segfault exit.

Actual result:
A segfault exit.

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a backtrace to see what is happening behind the scenes. To
find out how to generate a backtrace, please read for *NIX and for Win32

Once you have generated a backtrace, please submit it to this bug
report and change the status back to "Open". Thank you for helping
us make PHP better.

Works for me with 5.2 and 5.3, please provide a backtrace using a newer snapshot. And please make sure you have no Zend Extensions enabled.

I was in error.  I was using 5.2.5., not 5.2.6.  The segfault does not occur in 5.2.6.  Sorry for the noise, guys.
