Test script is pretty self-explanatory: even though an exception is thrown a 
while(true) loop gets exectued afterwards.

Test script:

echo "Throw exception";
throw new Exception();

echo "This should not be printed, and is not.";
while(true) {
   echo 'This should not be executed, but is!' . "\n";


Expected result:
We did not expected the while loop to execute.

Actual result:
The while loop executed.

We're seeing this on all our CentOS 5 servers with PHP 5.2.13, but not on our 
CentOS 4 machines though.
