(I mentioned this issue in bug 79729.)

OPcache seems to cause "Call to undefined method" errors in the context of `set_exception_handler` and `header_register_callback` callbacks.

I first observed this issue in 7.3.19 on 2020-06-12, two days after enabling OPcache and one day after upgrading from 7.3.18 to 7.3.19.

It looks like this specific behaviour first appeared in 7.3.10.

In 7.3.9 and earlier, PHP exits with "zend_mm_heap corrupted" according to Apache's error log.

In 7.3.9, PHP exits in that case with status 3221225477 right after an `opcache_reset()` call, and with status 1 if the cache is populated (according to the Apache 2.4.43 error log).

(In 7.3.10 and later, PHP doesn't exit, see above.)

I'm able to reproduce the issue consistently with two (specific) concurrent Ajax requests (handled by PHP via Apache's mod_php):

* Those Ajax requests always happen in the same order.
* The error always occurs in the same (second) request.
* The error does not occur, if the first request is blocked via the Firefox DevTools.

Both Ajax requests call PHP Debug Bar's [1] `sendDataInHeaders()` method inside a `header_register_callback()`, but only the second Ajax request causes the error:

Error thrown with message "Call to undefined method DebugBar\DataCollector\TimeDataCollector::getDataFormatter()"

#7 Error in C:\***\vendor\maximebf\debugbar\src\DebugBar\DataCollector\TimeDataCollector.php:214
#6 DebugBar\DataCollector\TimeDataCollector:collect in C:\***\vendor\maximebf\debugbar\src\DebugBar\DebugBar.php:238
#5 DebugBar\DebugBar:collect in C:\***\vendor\maximebf\debugbar\src\DebugBar\DebugBar.php:265
#4 DebugBar\DebugBar:getData in C:\***\vendor\maximebf\debugbar\src\DebugBar\DebugBar.php:321
#3 DebugBar\DebugBar:sendDataInHeaders in C:\***\src\***\DebugBar.php:353

#1 ***\Ajax:sendResponse in C:\***\src\***\***.php:2958
#0 ***\***:*** in C:\***\***.php:20

(Disabling OPcache also fixes the issue, of course.)

I'm unable to reproduce this issue with PHP 7.4.0 - 7.4.7.

To give more context:

The failing method call happens in `TimeDataCollector::collect()`:

The called method is `DataCollector::getDataFormatter()`:

(Note that `TimeDataCollector extends DataCollector`.)

Can you please specify which Ajax requests exactly?
