An easily reproducable segfault in a common PHP extension is a serious
issue which could lead to potential security breaches and thus lots of bad
mojo from nasty bugtraq postings.  If we know about such a segfault and we
have a fix and go ahead and release a "stable" package without this fix
then our entire QA process is a joke.  If we find such bugs before a
release, we fix them.  That's what the process is for.
