Package: php5
Version: 5.6.5+dfsg-1

This is continuation of bug #753851. This bug still exists.

There is simple script that causes this issue:

function crash()
     $notDefined[$i] = 'test';

function error_handler() { return false; }

echo "made it once\n";
echo "ok\n";

The bug is already reported to PHP here: 

There is simple work around to increment 
(executor_globals.uninitialized_zval.refcount__gc) reference counter in 
zend_error() function if error handler is set.

This bug was reproduced on the current Debian Jessie version,  php5 
5.6.5+dfsg-1 and apache 2.4.10-3.
