I've got a script which I've pared down from a much larger one, that causes a crash when php exits.

This happens in 5.3.3 as well.

The repro script is 340 lines. Removing any code (even a print statement) makes the problem go away.

Reproduce code:

Expected result:
It shouldn't crash. 

Actual result:

Please try using this snapshot:
For Windows:

I couldn't reproduce this on different configurations (not on windows though) and recently there were some fixes for gc. Could you please try the latest snapshot to make sure you're still seeing this after the changes went in?

Unfortunately, snapshots aren't working, but I updated from SVN this morning and compiled again, and the bug is still there. 

It's only happening on Windows, not Linux:

Linux	5.3.1 (from source)	no
Linux	5.3.2-rc1 (from source)	no

Win (nts vc6)	no
Win	5.3.1 (nts vc9)       	no

Win	5.3.2-rc1 (nts vc9)	yes
Win	5.3.3-svn (nts vc9)	yes

I'm not familiar with the garbage collector; I poked around, but I didn't get anywhere.

I've tested again with:

   PHP 5.3.3-dev (cli) (built: Feb  1 2010 12:22:19)

And it is still crashing on the script.
