PHP seg faults if the user accidentally forgets to call event_init before calling the other scheduling functions.

Tested on:  PHP 5.1.2-1+b1 , PHP 5.1.4

Reproduce code:


// If you comment this next line out, PHP seg faults. 

event_dispatch( EVLOOP_NONBLOCK );
print "all done.\n";


Expected result:
all done.

Actual result:
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with PHP.
Unfortunately you are not using a current version of PHP -- 
the problem might already be fixed. Please download a new
PHP version from

If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest
versions of PHP, please change the PHP version on this bug report
to the version you tested and change the status back to "Open".
Again, thank you for your continued support of PHP.
