This is a bit strange ...

You wouldn't think this is necessary, so I won't submit this as a patch ...

Just a note really, I couldn't make this segfault but there is a call to efree an invalid pointer.

/me leaves this for someone else who has more of a clue ...

I can reproduce this bug in php-5.6.0alpha3 on Ubuntu 13.10 with PHP compiled from source.

The function php_strip_whitespace is used in Composer to generate autoload file. I find it impossible to use Composer because of this bug.
