Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a short but complete example script to be able to reproduce
this bug ourselves. 

A proper reproducing script starts with <?php and ends with ?>,
is max. 10-20 lines long and does not require any external 
resources such as databases, etc. If the script requires a 
database to demonstrate the issue, please make sure it creates 
all necessary tables, stored procedures etc.

Please avoid embedding huge scripts into the report.

I try to find the exact place and create a script to reproduce the issue but so far I couldn't locate it.

I tried to locate the spot where it crashes and after I could reliably trigger a request that causes the segmentation fault, I tried to debug with xdebug to the exact spot. However that wasn't possible as the segmentation fault occurred even after php destructed all objects. I realized that only because I had a breakpoint in a destructor and after leaving the method, the process crashed. It's quite sad but I can't contribute any more to this bug report.
