  Summary: new DateTime in __construct() crashes

Unable to reproduce on Debian plus it is valgrind-clean. It sounds like it is related to the distro-specific patches that I know RedHat/Centos do to support the system tz lib. You could help us verify that by building from our source on that box and testing a non-modified build.

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a backtrace to see what is happening behind the scenes. To
find out how to generate a backtrace, please read

http://bugs.php.net/bugs-generating-backtrace-win32.php for Win32

Once you have generated a backtrace, please submit it to this bug
report and change the status back to "Open". Thank you for helping
us make PHP better.

Note: I tested it on Ubuntu. I did miss that its only crashing on Centos 7.

FWIW: The test script works for me on latest PHP-7.0 git checkout.

Update - this doesn't even need to be in an object's constructor, as I initially discovered it. Simply `<?php new DateTime();` will reproduce the issue!

Instantiating a DateTime object in a constructor causes an engine crash, printing either "Segmentation Fault" or "zend_mm_heap corrupted".

This only seems to happen in Centos7 with PHP7RC6 installed from the Webtatic-Testing repo; I can NOT reproduce it on OS X using the same version installed via homebrew. In that environment, I have disabled all extensions by renaming /etc/php.d to /etc/php.d.disabled and the crash still occurs.

Originally found under nginx/php-fpm, but happens under cli as well.

I can privately provide access to the server which reproduces this if helpful.

Test script:
class X {
   private $date;
   public function __construct() {
     $this->date = new DateTime();
$x = new X();

Expected result:
object(X)#1 (1) {
   object(DateTime)#2 (3) {
     string(26) "2015-11-05 20:24:38.000000"
     string(3) "UTC"

(exit 0)

Actual result:
object(X)#1 (1) {
   object(DateTime)#2 (3) {
     string(26) "2015-11-05 20:31:09.000000"
     string(3) "UTC"
Segmentation fault

(exit 139)
