Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: php5

Description:    Ubuntu karmic (development branch)
Release:        9.10

  Installed: 5.2.10.dfsg.1-2ubuntu2
  Candidate: 5.2.10.dfsg.1-2ubuntu2

Localhost sites including MySqlAdmin are randomly producing;
[Sun Aug 23 20:00:15 2009] [notice] child pid 17481 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)                                                        
[Sun Aug 23 20:00:34 2009] [notice] child pid 17483 exit signal Segmentation fault (11) 

in the apache logs. When this occurs the browser either reports no data
or prompts to download the php file (an empty file). Testing indicates
the fault occurs when the php file calls session_start().

Normally the page will load correctly after a fresh (or several).
