Live is 2 x  Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 2.40GHz, each processor is
hyperthreaded so it presents as 4 CPUs.

Test is 4 x Intel Pentium III (Cascades) 700Mhz.

I can reproduce the problem described in this bug on the live machine.

Running t.sh results in a segfault sometimes.

Test server wasn't reproducing till I did a "stress -c 4 -i 4 -m 4 &" to
 create some activity, at which point it usually segfaults quite quickly
- only a handful of iterations.

Commenting out "mysqli" and "mysql" extensions from the
/etc/php5/cli/conf.d/ scripts, appears to resolve the segfaults on the
test server.
