with debug enabled, do you see any errors in either your httpd errorlog or in 
/var/log/zenderrors ?

I have compiled php-4.0.6 with --enable-debug to try and get a backtrace, but when I 
do, the bug vanishes and the same code no longer crashed my httpd child process.. 

Here is some detailed info:

PHP 4.0.6 config line:
./configure  --with-mysql --with-gd --enable-track-vars --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local/lib 

--enable-bcmath --with-apache=../apache_1.3.20 --enable-ftp --enable-sockets 
--with-mcrypt --enable-debug

and for Apache 1.3.20


The script that is causing this error is:

As you can see, a use submits a form, which is the source of $cipher, an alphanumeric 
string, which is then encrypted and other actions take place after.

I am not using the Zend Optimizer or anything unusual here at all... If I run the 
httpd thru gdb and reproduce the crash it gives me an error in 
shutdown_memory_manager() when it crashes, but not much else since the bug disappears 
when I compile in debug into PHP...  If any more info is needed let me know... Thanks 
PHP team, you guys rule!!!

Can you please post your script as .txt file on the web, so that I can check how the 
$cipher is generated?
And is it possibly for you to make a backtrace of this crash 
( as I couldn't reproduce it.

PHP Options:
'./configure' '--with-mysql' '--with-gd' '--enable-track-vars' 
'--with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--enable-bcmath' '--with-apache=../apache_1.3.20' 
'--enable-ftp' '--enable-sockets' '--with-mcrypt'

The problem I am having is:

When using the code:

$cipher = md5($cipher); httpd crashes the current child process with:

[Fri Jun 29 10:54:49 2001] [notice] child pid 9766 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
[Fri Jun 29 10:54:50 2001] [notice] child pid 9920 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

The page then fails to load, returning nothing to the browser.

Also, I have another function called CleanSring($string);  which looks like:

function CleanString($string)
        $string = strip_tags($string);
        $string = 

        $string = 

        $string = preg_replace("/<[^>]*>/","",$string);
        return $string;

Calling this function like:

$string = CleanString($string); causes the same problem.

Whats weird is I call md5() again below the problem code:

    $now = date("r");
    $thisID = md5(substr(makeID(), 0, 16));
    $onetimepass = substr(md5($thisID), 0, 8);

And neither of these causes the same problem, even when being used in the same
