I'm getting a segmentation fault while running PHPUnit tests of one of my libraries, both on Linux and Windows.

I've traced it to an array_column() call in ./tests/EventEmitterTest.php@642

Dumping $actualListeners reveals that some of the object properties are corrupted just before the crash occurs. This seems to change randomly depending on which code is added or commented-out.

Test script:
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to reproduce this crash in isolation. I've prepared a ZIP archive with all the necessary PHP files:

(1.75 MB)

The following command can be used to run the test:

php ./vendor/phpunit/phpunit/phpunit

Expected result:
No segfault

Actual result:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
