i am also confronted with this issue and am wondering why php will crash
with a segmentation fault even if no mysql method/function is invoced

i ran the script you posted and it crashed after approx 1800
invocations on a not-that-busy LAMP webserver.

Out of curiosity i altered the script to invoke "php -n" which will
ignore any extensions specified in /etc/php5/conf.d/ and for my quick
tests, i am now at 13900 invocations of

> echo '<?php echo "toto tata \n";' | php -n;

without any crash.

do you need any more testing or do you have enough information to
start the process for pushing a patch to stable?
