 [2008-11-27 20:02 UTC] m dot haarmann at gmail dot com
When executing xml_parse on a parser handle that was created using 
xml_create_parser_ns, the script fails.

Reproduce code:
// dummy handlers
function defaultTagHandler($parser,$data){
	echo $data;

function namespaceBla($parser,$user_data,$prefix){
// read a file
$filename = "demo.xml";
$file_data = implode("",file($filename));
$parser = xml_parser_create_ns();

// crashes here.

Expected result:
to echo some node data.

Actual result:
bus error.

this problem doesn't occur when using just xml_create_parser, without 
the namespace awareness. i'm using the php and apache2 versions that are 
bundled with mac os.
