this has to be the single most annoying issue left in lenny's php
but we haven't had a great deal of success in tracking it down.

i have no idea of it's significant, but nDataSize seems kinda big for
what ought to be an address (assuming that's the size of the object
being inserted/updated).  also, 32767 == 2^15-1 == INT16_MAX (always a
point of interest when you see an integer near a limit at crash-time),
but again don't know if it's relevant.

are you at all able to reproduce the issue with a simple script (or perhaps
by a second script which loops around calling the first until it crashes?)
