What you can try is a tracefile with parameters and return values. The
tracefile aborts as soon as PHP segfaults. Then you can have a look at

to find the real cause (PHP shouldn't segfault) you'd need extensive
knowlegde of PHP internals. However, if you get a segfault due to
infinite recursion Xdebug will warn you and abort the script at some
