Attached test case causes an exception on Windows when running with USE_ZEND_ALLOC=0 

 * Do format conversion placing the output in buffer
static void xbuf_format_converter(void *xbuf, zend_bool is_char, const char *fmt, va_list ap) /* {{{ */
		if (adjust_width && adjust == RIGHT && min_width > s_len) {
				if (pad_char == '0' && prefix_char != NUL) {
					INS_CHAR(xbuf, *s, is_char);
				PAD_CHAR(xbuf, pad_char, min_width - s_len, is_char);
			 * Print the string s.
--->			INS_STRING(xbuf, s, s_len, is_char);

Test script:

$v1=str_repeat(".", 0xffffffff/5);

Expected result:
No crash

Actual result:
(3780.3594): Access violation - code c0000005 (first chance)
First chance exceptions are reported before any exception handling.
This exception may be expected and handled.

Thanks for the report. I don't reproduce this with the current dev trees. Either it's already fixed, or some parameter is missing. Could you please check?
