I do apologize but this bug is too hard to reproduce outside of a complex framework I'm using. I hope the *backtrace* below could help.

The segmentation fault happens when I call a static method in a class that just returns true.

My (minimal) configuration. No particular changes in php.ini.

sudo ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/php/8.0.0RC4 \
--with-pdo-mysql=mysqlnd \

Test script:
/* Note this script works well! It is just to give you an idea of what happens in my framework */
class Process{
    public static function isSpecial(string $customernumber) :bool{
        // does some checks
        return true;

    public static function addChannel( array $a) :array{
        if( self::isSpecial($a['Customer Number']) )   $a['Channel'] = 'AB2';
        else                                           $a['Channel'] = 'AB1';
        return $a;

$a = [];
$a['Customer Number'] = 'A100200';
$a = Process::addChannel($a);

Actual result:

Would it be possible to run your code under "USE_ZEND_ALLOC=0 valgrind php" and post the resulting log (on for example, it will likely be large)?

I run:

export export USE_ZEND_ALLOC=0
valgrind --log-file=php.log /usr/local/php/8.0.0RC4/bin/php myscript.php

Here the log file:

Hope this could help! Thank you

I realized that the issue happens only when I have opcache enabled in the php.ini file. I will investigate further but it's not an opcache issue and not a PHP engine one, it seems.

Closed this bug as it seems related to Bug #80275 (opcache.jit crashes with some values)
