[php-maint] Bug#496673: php5-pgsql / php-db segmentation fault

Package: php5-pgsql
Package: php-db

I'm getting segmentation faults on exit when using php-db with php5- 
pgsql. I cut it down to the test script below.

The problem seems to appear on exit, but consistently appear when  
connecting to a postgres database, and not when no database connection  
is made.

Please let me know what additional information would be most useful to  



$db = DB::connect("pgsql://bay:[removed password]@db/bay");
echo "It gets here - the seg. fault seems to happen on exit\n";
