Description Daniel Hallmark 2005-05-20 23:15:06 UTC
System Info: 
  SuSE Linux 9.0 (patched)
  Apache 2.0.48
  mod_php4 4.3.3
  mysql 4.0.15

Installation and configuration of the wiki completes successfully.  The "sysop"
user account is created during initialization.  All attempts to create a
subsequent new users via the Special:Userlogin page result in a segfault being
displayed in the apache2 error_log and the user account is not created.

This same system has been running a copy of 1.4rc1 with no problems and user
creation works correctly.  I started working backwards from 1.4.4 to determine
when the problem was introduced.  Mediawiki 1.4.3 exhibits the same problematic
behavior.  1.4.2 functions correctly.

Note that any segfault is likely to be an error in PHP. Try a current version of PHP 
first; the current PHP4 release is 4.3.11.

If that doesn't resolve your problem, try to isolate a test case program and submit it 
to PHP's bug tracker.
