Under cygwin:

PHP 5.6.13 (cli) (built: Sep  4 2015 12:40:08)
Copyright (c) 1997-2015 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.6.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2015 Zend Technologies

I get the following reproducible SIGSEGV after installing the phpunit/phpunit package.

Test script:
In a composer.json file

	"require": {
		"phpunit/phpunit": "~4"

Then run php composer.phar install. It should segfault just after you can read "Generating autoload files".

Expected result:
No "Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.".

The program completes without crashing.

Actual result:
Here is a backtrace in gdb:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

I got a crash in lex_scan() when trying to use the arcanist tool under cygwin x86 (on Windows 7 64 bit).

To get the stack trace I ran php from gdb:

$ gdb php

then in gdb:

r /path/to/arcanist.php install-certificate

Starting program: /usr/bin/php /path/to/arcanist.php install-certificate

Sorry, I forgot to mention that by the arcanist tool I meant this one:

arcanist.php is normally run via the 'arc' wrapper script, however I needed to call that directly from gdb.
