I have updated to the latest packages (including those of php5) and the
segfault remains. On my system, only the moodle cron script triggers
this bug. Other test scripts do not produce this. However, I have not
tried with php-postgres included, although that does seem to be needed
given that the moodle script accesses a postgresql database.

I have removed all unnecessary packages and the problem remains. The
remaining packages are unrelated and do not show up in the shared
library dependency list of the core file produced.
