Description:
------------
The subject kind of says most of it. Under both GDB and Valgrind, PHP enters a massive recursion until it finally crashes by overrunning the stack, which is expected, according to a comment in a test that a fix needs to be backported from HEAD. So this bug is mostly about "please backport this fix", I suppose.

Reproduce code:
---------------
See tests/output/ob_11.phpt

Expected result:
----------------
A fatal error saying "you can't do that".

Actual result:
--------------
Endless recursion.

Does this happen with PHP_5_2 and/or HEAD? (if so, update the version 
properly)
 [2009-07-18 01:42 UTC] gwynne@php.net
Yes, it happens in all three branches.

Correction: This does NOT happen in HEAD.

Wasn't this fixed with the backport of the ob handling API in trunk?
