This used to work just fine in older versions of PHP/Ubuntu/Maxima

If I try to run maxima from php exec() I'll get a segmentation fault, no matter how simple the input file is.

Test script:
   exec("/usr/bin/maxima -b /tmp/testInput.txt > /tmp/testOutput.txt");
   // replace /usr/bin/maxima with your maxima path
   // testInput.txt contains the text "1+1;"

Actual result:
Segmentation fault

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a backtrace to see what is happening behind the scenes. To
find out how to generate a backtrace, please read for *NIX and for Win32

Once you have generated a backtrace, please submit it to this bug
report and change the status back to "Open". Thank you for helping
us make PHP better.

It's not clear from the description, but I assume the segfault is with PHP and not maxima?
