Thanks for the report. I reproduced the problem successfully with your
instructions. Following Mediawiki installation and putting
LocalSettings.php into the right place, Apache starts producing segfaults
on database writes. However, stopping and starting Apache cured the
problem. I have not been able to pin down exactly what happens yet.

I have not increased severity at this stage because the effect is only
temporary and configuration changes to fix it are not required.
