Copied handle yielded by curl_copy_handle() with new option CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER crashes while curl_multi_exec() running. The test script causes segmentation fault in libcurl.

However, there are no problems with the following native C code. I suppose this is a PHP bug.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <curl/curl.h>

void set_header(CURL *ch) {
    struct curl_slist *headers = NULL;
    headers = curl_slist_append(headers, "Foo: Bar");
    curl_easy_setopt(ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, headers);

int main(void) {

    CURL *ch_base, *ch_x, *ch_y;

    CURLM *mh;
    int active;

    mh = curl_multi_init();

    ch_base = curl_easy_init();
    curl_easy_setopt(ch_base, CURLOPT_URL, "");

    ch_x = curl_easy_duphandle(ch_base);
    curl_multi_add_handle(mh, ch_x);

    ch_y = curl_easy_duphandle(ch_base);
    curl_multi_add_handle(mh, ch_y);

    do {
        curl_multi_perform(mh, &active);
    } while (active);

    return 0;


Test script:

$base = curl_init('');
$mh = curl_multi_init();

for ($i = 0; $i < 2; ++$i) {
    $ch = curl_copy_handle($base);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, ['Foo: Bar']);
    curl_multi_add_handle($mh, $ch);

do {
    curl_multi_exec($mh, $active);
} while ($active);


Expected result:
No errors.

Actual result:
Segmentation fault.
