Unfortunately I haven't yet found a _short_ script that reproduces
the bug. It seems it will only crash in special cases in which you
have a minimum number of included files and functions... still
trying to get it to the minimum crashsize :)

But so far the problem is:
script a includes a file b with function c
file b includes a file d with class description e
function c creates a new object f of class e and returns it.

now PHP will crash when it creates this object if it has a function 
that takes a variable by reference. But _only_ when I have included
some other files as wel.. (which don't have anything to do with the
code that produces the crash...)

sorry if this sounds vage, I'm still trying to find a minimal script..
if I don't succeed I'll just have to send the whole bunch i guess..

(BTW,is there anyway to update this bugreport later?)

I believe this has been fixed already.  Did you happen to
post a followup that got solved?
Can you check out if it still happens in 3.0.3?

No response from the user.  This bug should be fixed
by now.  If it isn't, please submit a new bug report.
