If you haven't already, search the http://bugs.php.net database, and
Apache's bug data for similar versions/OS info with SSL.
If nothing matches, file a bug report with at least one of those places --
maybe even both, and modify them to have links to each other in your
Hopefully you can go back to 4.3.4 and keep it running for now...
Maybe try dropping curl, just as a test, and other things (eg, enable the
thread safety, whatever that is)
If you can isolate the bug to a smaller set of inputs to ./configure or
pin-point what does and doesn't make it crash, you can help find the guy
who can actually fix it.
There are also some instructions on what to do with your core dump file on
the PHP bugs site. Follow the, and get that output into your bug reports.
It may be incomprehensible to you and me, but apparently the REAL
programmers can actually read that crap :-)
