I observe a segfault when running a xenforo package in debug mode.

The configuration of the server is Fedora Core 8, MySQL 5.0.45

I recompiled PHP with debug mode and turned off all extensions not from the 
standard archive.

I found a way to avoid it by recompiling the mysqli extension with mysqlnd driver.

I am not really sure if it was worth to open this report as I don't know how you 
can reproduce it, but at least you'll hear about the issue.

Test script:
I am not sure I can make a minimal reproducable case. Xenforo is a large package based on Zend Framework.

any call to the xenforo scripts in debug mode crashes php, both fcgi and cli

Actual result:

Core was generated by `php index.php'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

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.

I am sorry, but the bugtrace is already posted in the report.

Sorry, I meant backtrace.

Or you need some other one?

Glad to hear mysqlnd works fine.

Its impossible to tell what could be going on with libmysql by just checking the backtrace. You seem to be using an older version of MySQL/libmysql. Could you try a recent version of libmysql?

Also, as hard as it is, it would be most helpful to get a reproducible test script.

Well, after almost 2 years and complete migtation to mysqlnd, I can't reproduce a 
bug because it involves libmysql. 
I don't see much sence in compiling old PHP and MySQL versions just to reproduce 
this error.
Let's close it.
