Ok, Pierre was writing this is a separate issue then #54197. So I'm opening a new one. 

The crash happens with PHP CGI if you are setting user_ini.filename at global level to none. And you must also have a PATH section for the current script.

This only happens with Windows. With *nix it's working as expected.

Test script:
adding this to "php.ini":
user_ini.filename =
upload_max_filesize = 5M

And then accessing a phpinfo.php through CGI.

Expected result:
user_ini.filename	no value	no value
upload_max_filesize	5M		2M

Actual result:
php-cgi is crashing.

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a backtrace to see what is happening behind the scenes. To
find out how to generate a backtrace, please read for *NIX and for Win32

Once you have generated a backtrace, please submit it to this bug
report and change the status back to "Open". Thank you for helping
us make PHP better.
