Calling nl2br(any_object) causes segmentation fault and crashing php.

Test script:

// any object
echo nl2br(new mysqli());

Expected result:
fatal error is expected

Catchable fatal error: Object of class mysqli could not be converted to string in - on line 3

Actual result:
segfault and php crash

dmesg shows this:
[12476.986676] php-cgi[21195]: segfault at 3118 ip 00007ff86c5d6074 sp 00007fff1edd4e60 error 4 in php-cgi[7ff86c26f000+77e000]

I can't reproduce:

$ ~/php/php5.3-t/bin/php -r "echo nl2br(new mysqli);"

Warning: nl2br() expects parameter 1 to be string, object given in Command line code on line 1

I also find no problem in nl2br (all pretty standard). Can you give more details?

Seems that the segfault is caused by the object itself, I will post more details as soon as i know something. Sorry for the misleading description.

I'm closing as bogus. If you find the problem, please submit a new bug report.

Than you.
