this function is used for any class name, string, etc. It would help to have something to begin with, a script that is :)

I am getting this same segfault. It does not depend on the contents of the file 
(a one-word plain text file with no <?php will trigger it)

Using php 5.4.11 and APC 3.1.13 on FreeBSD 9.1

Seems to be triggered by setting apc.shm_size to a value of less than 5M. 
Setting apc.shm_size="5M" fixes it for me.

unfortunately I can’t confirm that theory, as we run APC with an shm size of 512M.

They may not be the same bug then -- I am running a newer version than your 
initial report. Mine happens immediately on the http request (or commandline 
execution with apc.enable_cli=1)

apc.shm_size="2M" works fine on my older php 5.3.13/apc3.1.7 installation so it 
looks like 5.4 (or newer memcache version) uses much more memory in the case of 
apc cache (or perhaps just a much higher initial overhead).

Cached Files: 3 (324.9 KBytes)
Memory used: 4.4 MBytes (87.1%)  (not using user cache, just opcode)

They may both be cache memory exhaustion related bugs, try increasing it if you 
can spare the ram and see what happens. 

Fyi, my shm type is: mmap memory, File Locks locking
