When the user simply calls ->do on a GearmanClient, the context member of the task structure will be set to the client structure - and not to the assumed gearman_task_obj structure.

This leads to an invalid efree() in _php_free_task when the number of received bytes causes the correct bit to be set (the ->do_data_size from client will be used when referring to ->flags of obj).

As the gearman_task_obj never gets created when a simple do is called, it seems that there's no need to clean it up either. The patch simply checks if the context is the same as the client of the task, and if so, just returns without doing the call to free.

I request this gets added to the PHP package ASAP. This efree() error gave me headaches and problems for at least a day and a half. A helpful post on the Gearman Google Groups page from Mats fixed my problem. Please patch and re-release!!!

I believe this was fixed in 0.7.0.  I cannot recreate it on trunk and the google group post regarding this issue claims it was fixed.  Can you verify?

I'm unable to test it at the moment, but yes, the fix was planned for either libgearman or php-gearman 0.7.0 and everything should be OK now.
