Deep within their forums, I found an answer in a thread.  The thread
pointed me to this:


"Engine Protection" is not available in security/php-suhosin.  Seems to
me that the benefits of using the patch version easily outweigh that of
the extension version, solely for protection against formatted string

I also found this amusing tidbit, which is a sticky post on their forum:


That sticky also states that pspell.so will cause Suhosin to crash,
advocating that pspell.so must come last in extension.so, but then also
advocates simply not using pspell at all.  I'm sure that does nothing
but confuse users.

Seems the OP has also posted there:


It would be interesting to know if the segfaults people experience are
specific to the extension version of Suhosin.
