Someone thought the problem was that (from what I wrote earlier in  
the ticket) "/opt/local/lib/libxml2.dylib (version 9.31.0) and /usr/ 
lib/libxml2.dylib (version 9.16.0 (on Mac OS X 10.4.11)) claim to  
have the same compatibility version (9.0.0) though they are  
incompatible because they define the xmlURI struct differently."  
Maybe under some circumstances the one library gets used at build  
time but the other one gets used at runtime, causing the crash. I  
think it is a bug for libxml to modify is public interface but not  
increase its advertised compatibility version.

I can't reproduce the problem with the given sample script in the  
description at the PHP command line or using the PHP FastCGI module  
under lighttpd. I'll compile Apache 2 and the PHP Apache module and  
see if I can get the problem to occur there.
