We've got a problem with PHP 5.3.8 and a third party (open source) library (WSo2 SOAP).
At some point during the request to the PHP script, some structures seem to be getting corrupted causing PHP to crash. Depending on the code in the PHP script, it's either crashing during in a print_r/var_export or crashing when the PHP shuts down (the exact location of the crash moves around when we alter the code). We can reprod this on Win32 and Linux now. But how can we go about debugging where the corruption occurred? The address of the corrupted data is not known until the segfault/access violation occurs so we can't set a watch on it (as far as we can tell). Here's what we see in the debugger on Win32: Unhandled exception at 0x1008eb45 (php5ts.dll) in php-cgi.exe: Access violation reading location 0x4cac5400 php5ts.dll!_zval_ptr_dtor(_zval_struct * * zval_ptr=0x4cab5400) + 0x5 bytes php5ts.dll!zend_hash_destroy(_hashtable * ht=0x034cc0f0) + 0x27 bytes php5ts.dll!zend_objects_free_object_storage(_zend_object * object=0x03489fa0, void * * * tsrm_ls=0x003f42b0) + 0x2b bytes php5ts.dll!zend_objects_store_free_object_storage(_zend_objects_store * objects=0x003f685c, void * * * tsrm_ls=0x003f42b0) + 0x9c bytes php5ts.dll!shutdown_executor(void * * * tsrm_ls=0x003f42b0) + 0x2fe bytes php5ts.dll!zend_deactivate(void * * * tsrm_ls=0x003f42b0) + 0x91 bytes php5ts.dll!php_request_shutdown(void * dummy=0x00000000) + 0x31f bytes php-cgi.exe!main(int argc=1, char * * argv=0x003f31d0) + 0xe89 bytes php-cgi.exe!__tmainCRTStartup() + 0x10f bytes Any tips welcomed.
