When a closure is invoked more than once that 'uses' a variable defined with the 
'static' keyword, the scripting engine crashes. No output is sent to the browser 
and server issues no response.

If we remove the 'static' keyword from the variable declaration, the issue is 
resolved. Note that in PHP 5.3.5, this issue was not present.

Test script:

Expected result:

Actual result:
No result. Scripting engine crashes.

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 can't reproduce it.
