New Comment:

I looked into it, and mcrypt_decrypt is using the old API which does NOT work in 
conjunction with mcrypt_module_open.
mcrypt_decrypt uses it's own mcrypt_module_open. I'm closing this bug, as there is no 
way to catch it (and it's not severe because you should not mix the old API and the 
new API).

It's still a bug, PHP should not crash. Assiging to myself.

Correction, and solution.

It turns out that it wasn't mcrypt_module_open that was seg faulting, but 
mcrypt_decrypt.  The solution was that I didn't have a generic_init call.

Running PHP 4.0.6 and libmcrypt 2.4.15 on a Linux box (2.4.x kernel).

I've narrowed it down to the call to mcrypt_module_open.  That's the one that hoses 

$cipher = "des"; 
$td = mcrypt_module_open ($cipher, "", MCRYPT_MODE_CBC, ""); 

Sometimes it works, other times, I get seg faults, which would rule out library 
permissions, etc.

Any ideas?
