When did your problem begin? I converted from v2 to 3.0.2 and then upgraded to 3.1.2
Sice I used V3, my apache web server began to show randomly segmentation faults (11)
Please describe your problem. Most dumps are related to zend_stack.c
Program terminated with signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
#0 0x00007f7c9c2b39dd in zend_stack_push (stack=stack@entry=0x7f7c9c7e6a88 <compiler_globals+616>,
element=element@entry=0x7f7c9c7e6a68 <compiler_globals+584>, size=size@entry=32) at /usr/src/debug/php-5.4.20/Zend/zend_stack.c:42
42 stack->elements[stack->top] = (void *) emalloc(size);

The problem began on OpenSuse x86_64 13.1 with php5-5.4.20 apache2-2.4.6.
After trying several patches and tricks, I moved only the phpbb3 forum to a new OpenSuse 13.2 server dedicated to him, with php5-5.6.1 and apache2-2.4.10.

The segfault started immediatly only on the new server, and the old one started to work for others sistes without any error because no phpbb code was no more running there.
