Package: php5
Severity: normal


1st very sorry for my poor english, maybe you will understand me.

I use php5 for administering data in a postgres database. When php5-curl
package installed and i use tcp port to connect to the db server, then at the
and of running script php dumps core with ,,segmentation fault'' message.
This is an example, with a very-very short script:

pc22:/home/ptg/php# cat db.php
$host="host=localhost"; ## with $host=""; it works, but I have to use
## ,,tcp port connect'' to the ,,real'' db server, only with ,,test server''
## possible to go on with ,,unix socket'' type conn.

$dbconn=pg_connect($host." dbname=****** user=*** password=********")
  or die("I cannot connect to server.");
print "Connected... ";
print "Disconnected.\n";

pc22:/home/ptg/php# php db.php
Connected... Disconnected.
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Funny, but if i uninstall php5-curl(!!) package (some ,,strace time'' helped
me), everything works fine:

pc22:/home/ptg/php# dpkg --purge php5-curl

(Reading database ... 151030 files and directories currently installed.)
Removing php5-curl ...
Purging configuration files for php5-curl ...
pc22:/home/ptg/php# php db.php
Connected... Disconnected.

I can't understand what the problem is, just i like to use php5-curl
_and_ php5-pgsql package.
