Very hard to reproduce exactly. It happens while retrieving data from an Oracle 8 database. The same code works fine in 4.0.1pl2. The latest CVS (05/09/00) has the same problem.

It happens in the following code segment (please note that it works for some values of $parent while it fails on others):

    $cat=new Category;
    db_select("select * from $BASEDB.CATAGORY where PARENT_ID=$parent order by NAME");
    while (db_fetch_array($row))
db_select will just do OciParse and then OciExecute, while db_fetch_array wraps OciFetchInto:

function db_fetch_array(&$a)
  global $DB_LINK, $STMT;
  return $res;

'./configure' '--enable-track-vars' '--disable-pear' '--with-ttf=/usr' '--with-ftp' '--with-gdbm' '--with-gd=/usr' '--with-oci8=/ora01/app/oracle/product/8.0.5' '--with-regex=system' '--enable-sysvsem' '--enable-sysvshm' '--enable-xml' '--disable-libtool-lock' '--with-apxs=/data/x5/apache/bin/apxs' '--disable-debug'

Still does not work with the newest release. But I have some more info. The table that I'm trying to get the data from has the following structure:

Column Name                    Null?    Type
------------------------------ -------- ----
ID                             NOT NULL NUMBER(20)
NAME                                    VARCHAR2(60)
PARENT_ID                               NUMBER(20)
IS_LEAF                                 VARCHAR2(1)
CAT_NO                                  NUMBER(5)
TREE_LEVEL                              NUMBER(2)
CATNO_PATH                              VARCHAR2(100)
NAME_PATH                               VARCHAR2(350)
ID_PATH                                 VARCHAR2(100)
CAT_COMMENT                             CLOB(4000)
RESL_COMMENT                            CLOB(4000)
SORTNUM                                 NUMBER(10)

Now the crach occurs when while doing (after parsing select * from category where parent_id=2:


It only crashes when the OCI_RETURN_LOBS flag is set. Works fine otherwise. The wierd part is that it only crashes for some IDs and not for others. The backtrace that I get when run against the latest cvs (2000-10-02) is:
