I am using this pcre version:

PCRE (Perl Compatible Regular Expressions) Support	enabled
PCRE Library Version	8.41 2017-07-05
PCRE JIT Support	enabled
Directive	Local Value	Master Value
pcre.backtrack_limit	1000000	1000000
pcre.recursion_limit	100000	100000
pcre.jit	1	1

when i am using the function preg_match it comes an error 500. Log file output:
[Sun Aug 27 15:20:43.965309 2017] [core:notice] [pid 32606:tid 139736805609088] AH00052: child pid 27928 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

here is my configure line:
./configure --enable-maintainer-zts --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-mysqli=mysqlnd --with-pdo-mysql=mysqlnd --with-gd --with-curl --enable-cli --with-openssl --enable-soap --with-pear --with-config-file-path=/usr/local/lib --enable-mbstring --with-zlib --with-jpeg-dir=/usr --enable-zip

I installed pthreads (but if i exclude this from php.ini, the failure happens again)

Also I switched the session path to /tmp. The rest of my php.ini is default.

Test script:
$u_agent = "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_11_6) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/53.0.2785.143 Safari/537.36"; 

if(preg_match('/MSIE/i',$u_agent)) { // here the error occurs

	echo "ie";
