After upgrading from 7.4.8 to 7.4.9, a segfault occurs in this example.

I was only able to reproduce the problem using an event extension (

I'm not sure if this is not the event extension issue, but minor updates usually didn't break extensions. In addition, there is a dependence on a static properties of the class, which is loaded into set_exception_handler

Test script:
file segafult.php:
set_exception_handler(static function ($e) {
	include 'Test.php';
	throw $e;

$base = new EventBase();
$e = new Event($base, -1, Event::TIMEOUT, static function () {
	throw new \Exception;

file Test.php:
class Test
//	public $foo = 'foo';
	private function set()
//		var_dump(self::$foo); // any use of a static property
		self::$foo = 'bar';

Expected result:
PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Exception

Actual result:
Segmentation fault
