PHP interpreter stops with segmentation fault when it comes into recursive class constant definition.

Test script:

class SomeConstants

Expected result:
It would be better if PHP interpreter stopped with helpful error message about recursive definition.

Actual result:
Nov 28 19:04:00 homestead kernel: [  194.868150] traps: php-fpm7.1[2753] general protection ip:565383b93854 sp:7fffcdf87b30 error:0 in php-fpm7.1[565383958000+3cf000]

This throws an exception in all recent versions of PHP:

Also, the code as you wrote it will never even start to recurse, as the constant is never used.

Can you please double-check that there is no additional code required to trigger the crash? Also, can you try running using "php -n" to check whether an extension is responsible for the different behavior?
