When a class is created which implements Serializable, and the serialize method instantiates another class which is then serialized and returned, and several instances of the first class are created in an array, and then entire array is serialized, instances after the first one are considered recursive. If this is unserialized, PHP segfaults.

Test script:

If you uncomment the last line, the entire script segfaults.

This might be related to #36424. Since that bug has been fixed for a while, I opted to open a new one.
