The last changes php_pgsql_meta_data cause segfaults in client and 

Reproduce code:
  $dbconn = pg_connect("dbname=*** user=***") or die("Could not connect");

  $meta = pg_meta_data($dbconn, 'a_table');
  if (is_array($meta)) {

Actual result:

What version of PostgreSQL library & server are you using?

Compile PHP using --enable-debug option and provide a new, useful backtrace.

part of pgsql.c

        src = estrdup(table_name);
        tmp_name = php_strtok_r(src, ".", &tmp_name2);

        if (!*tmp_name2) {
                /* Default schema */
                tmp_name2 = tmp_name;
                tmp_name = "public";

in condition tmp_name2 is NULL if table_name without scheme name

It works fine for me, see:

teste=# SELECT table_schema, table_name FROM information_schema.tables WHERE table_schema = 'public';
 table_schema | table_name 
 public       | id

var_dump(pg_meta_data($x, 'id'));

array(1) {
  array(6) {
    string(4) "int4"
    ["not null"]=>
    ["has default"]=>
    ["array dims"]=>
