Segmentation fault occasionally occurs during new SphinxClient instance creating.

Test script:
$sphinx = new SphinxClient();
$sphinx->setServer('db01', 9312);

Actual result:
Core was generated by `php-fpm: pool www                                         '.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

Could you plz try to rebuild PHP & Sphinx extension with --enable-debug and 
regenerate the backtrace again?

I found that segfault happens when an error occurs (for ex. invalid connection). 

Hope you will release fixed version soon. Thank you.
 [2013-04-04 07:51 UTC]
Any idea how to reproduce it?
A short reproduce script would be nice to have.
 [2013-04-04 11:35 UTC] vkartaviy at gmail dot com
It looks like I finally found what cause the problem exactly.

$sphinx = new \SphinxClient();
//$sphinx->setServer('non-existent-host', 9312);

// Bellow will segfault
// or

Ok, so it appears this problem was fixed in SVN long ago and I just need to roll out a 
new release.
Will do in a minute..

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.

Released 1.3.0. 
Enjoy =)
 [2013-04-04 12:03 UTC] vkartaviy at gmail dot com
Do you have a plans to host this extension on github so it will always be possible 
to build latest version on demand?

Thank you!

I'm thinking about moving it to Github, yes, but I'm not yet sure it's worth the time.
