severity 542514 grave


I con also confirm this bug after an upgrade from 5.2.9.dfsg.1-4 to  
5.2.10.dfsg.1-2, but with apache2 2.2.11-6 (i downgraded apache2  
because of #541607).

With this bug, all PHP webapps are segfaulting very often, which  
renders the service quite useless and then the package almost  
unusuable, thus the severity increase. Such a segfault may also be  
exploitable and is a potential security risk.
