When opcache disabled - no segfaults. I have tried last php version from (1a1240) 

I cannot reproduce segfault on small script, so code bellow is enough approximate (I know it very-very ugly code, but it works on php5.3+APC).
On my project segfault reproduces in 100% cases on the first HTTP-request.               

It seems, opcache broke cache of compiled scripts: when I move source code of function sql_assoc above or below of other function - no problem. When I return function on old place - segfault return also.

Test script:
//WARN: Code is very approximate! It uses PDO.

try {
    sql_assoc("SELECT which throw exception");                                                      
}catch(Exception $e)
    // we MUST catch exception here, but process killed by SIGSEGV                       

function sql_assoc($sql, $link = null)                                                        
    return sql_fetch(sql_query($sql, $link));                                             
function sql_query($sql, $link = null)                                                    
    return sql_get_connect($link)->query($sql);                                               
function sql_get_connect($link = null)                                                    
    if ($OurPDO = DBConnector::instance()->getConnection($link)) {                       
        return $OurPDO;
    } else {
        throw new Exception('...');
function sql_fetch($result, $fetch_type = PDO::FETCH_ASSOC)                              
    return $result->fetch($fetch_type);                                                  

function sql_check_result($result)                                                       
    if (!($result instanceof OurPDOStatement)) {                                         
        throw new Exception('...');                                                      

Expected result:
Catched PDOException

Actual result:
Segmentation fault

opcache.optimization_level="0xffffffef" solves problem - no segfault

According to it means:
bit 4 - pass 5:
block optimization (the most expensive optimization pass which perform many different optimization patterns based on CFG - control flow graph)

Can you still reproduce this segfault with any of the actively
supported PHP versions[1]?
