When doing a query against a view, the php application segfaults. Set/get/delete commands all work fine.

Attached is an strace, a stack trace from gdb, and various other support files, including the repro script.

I was asked to run a gdb, but I don't really think it looks that helpful. I've attached it.

gdb file, looks pretty useless without a php debug symbols version
Comment by Mark Nunberg [ 15/Nov/12 ]
My bad. Type 'bt' when you get the segfault :)

That'll show you the stack trace
Comment by Jeff Minard [ 15/Nov/12 ]
Yes, this looks much more helpful :)

Here is the same segfault when using the latest couchbase.so compiled from the github master branch (so, cutting edge, I'd seen some lcb changes, so I figured I'd give ya both).

Can you try this patch?

diff --git a/views.c b/views.c

I'll make it as a gerrit changeset as well..

That changed fixed the segfault, yes. The value assigned to the variable from the $cb->view() call is bool(false)

Thanks for the quick work Mark! Looks like it'll be closeable after it's reviewed and in.
