Seems that bug & is happening again.

When I try to read a mail message with a long list of To: addresses PHP crashes every time.

System Infomation:
OS: CentOS 2.6.18 64-bit
PHP: 5.3.6
Apache: 2.2.3
C-Client: 2.2.1

Test script:
$mbox = imap_open($imapLocation.'INBOX', $user, $pass);
$headerInfo = imap_header($mbox, $mailID);
// Above will crash if the message being read has too many To: addresses 

Expected result:
Should not crash, should parse as many To: addresses as possible

Actual result:
PHP crashed at imap_header()

No error found in error_log
