To clarify, this happens when force installing any PHP extension with pecl over an already installed extension.

For example:
pecl install --force stats-2.0.3
pecl install --force APCu_bc-beta

Yes, that's a known issue.  On Linux, it is possible to replace a
shared object file that is in use, but that likely causes issues
(the segfault in your case).  There is a detailed answer on Stack
Overflow[1].  Anyhow, this is not a issue, but rather
related to the pear installer, so please report it there[2].
