I noticed an issue in my development environment with PHP 5.5 that whenever there was a syntax error in my code, I would get a segmentation fault. It seems to happen when I am auto-loading a class file that has the syntax error, within a generator. Somehow removing the parameter to the class instantiation that triggers the auto-load avoids the segmentation fault. I've included a minimal amount of code that can reproduce the issue.

Test script:
class SyntaxError {
	public function __construct() {

function autoload($fullClass) {

function testGenerator() {
	yield new SyntaxError('param');

foreach (testGenerator() as $i);

Expected result:
Parse error:

lws5 htdocs # php test.php

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected end of file, expecting function (T_FUNCTION) in /home/www/htdocs/SyntaxError.php on line 4

Actual result:
Parse error + segmentation fault:

lws5 htdocs # php test.php

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected end of file, expecting function (T_FUNCTION) in /home/www/htdocs/SyntaxError.php on line 4
Segmentation fault
