Description:
------------
running the built-in web server and making 0 or 1 request, Then ctrl-c to 
shutdown throws out extra malloc error. This does not happen with more than one 
request. The request can be empty PHP files, or even static resources.


Test script:
---------------
<?php

Expected result:
----------------
clean shutdown without malloc errors

Actual result:
--------------

Please try using this snapshot:

  http://snaps.php.net/php5.4-latest.tar.gz
 
For Windows:

  http://windows.php.net/snapshots/

I can not reproduce this, could you test again with the svn-trunk? thanks

a basic ./configure did not recreate, but when I build with my default configure 
it is still failing in the latest snapshot.

my configure flags:

'./configure'  '--prefix=/Users/scottaubrey/.usr/' '--with-config-file-
path=/Users/scottaubrey/conf/php.ini' '--with-config-file-scan-
dir=/Users/scottaubrey/conf/php.ini.d/' '--with-mysqli=mysqlnd' '--with-pdo-
mysql=mysqlnd'

I still can not reproduce with your configure flags, can you paste the whole 
warning message out? of course after ereasing your private info.

Hi Laruence,

The whole message is already there:
php(469) malloc: *** error for object 0x101f19700: pointer being freed was not 
allocated
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
Abort trap: 6

but after a little bit more experimenting, it seems it's APC causing the issue, 
which of course becomes active with the configure flags picking up my php.ini. 
disabling the extension then does not reproduce.

hmm, in this case, could you file a bug at http://pecl.php.net/package/apc ? 
and I am going to mark this bug as a bogus.

thanks
