Randomly the SoapClient constructor is trying to allocate huge amounts of memory 
and causing the error Error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted 
(tried to allocate 18446744072233156736 bytes)

The amount goes from 2GB to numbers like above.

This started to happen when we switched from 5.3.10 to 5.3.13 (and now 5.3.14).

I am not able to reproduce the error easily, once it do not happens in all the 
requests. The constructor is always called with the same parameters.

Soap configuration:
Soap Client	enabled
Soap Server	enabled

Directive	Local Value
soap.wsdl_cache	1
soap.wsdl_cache_dir	/tmp
soap.wsdl_cache_enabled	1
soap.wsdl_cache_limit	5
soap.wsdl_cache_ttl	86400

Test script:
$soap = new SoapClient('', array('merchantId' => '???', 'transactionKey' => '???'));

We run into a very similar issue on our CentOS 6.4 box (running PHP 5.3.3). 

The cause of error (in our case) was a disk partition full error leading to corrupted wsdl cache file. 

In the SoapClient constructor it then tries to allocate 4G of memory and get blocked by php ini directive.
