In function extract() not the length of a line key always is correctly defined. 

Sometimes it is calculated incorrectly and any following operation with this string leads to memory corruption. 

Here an example which has been received at debugging.

We are used this patch to fix problem:

    var_exists = 0;

+    if (key_type == HASH_KEY_IS_STRING)
+      var_name_len = strlen(var_name);
    if (key_type == HASH_KEY_IS_STRING) {
      var_exists = zend_hash_exists(EG(active_symbol_table), var_name, var_name_len + 1);

With this patch all works well, but I think it does not exclude a problem source.

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a short but complete example script to be able to reproduce
this bug ourselves. 

A proper reproducing script starts with <?php and ends with ?>,
is max. 10-20 lines long and does not require any external 
resources such as databases, etc. If the script requires a 
database to demonstrate the issue, please make sure it creates 
all necessary tables, stored procedures etc.

Please avoid embedding huge scripts into the report.

To create a simple example, unfortunately, it will not turn out. 

On a simple example all works correctly. 

And in a ready product already there is such error. 

It was possible to spend debugging with the help gdb:

If you tell me how to make core dump of process (PHP working as the module) - I also will give it.
