[Centos] PHP+Oracle problem

A very long time ago (it's been years since I've used Oracle), when 
doing this similar thing it ended up binding LDAP out of Oracle as well, 
which in turn caused all sorts of problems and crashes.

Check your PHP compile, and make sure it's not pulling any errant 
libraries out of your Oracle installation, instead of using the ones 
that are "normal"; it's possible that on the commandline your 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH (sic) is including Oracle libs (and segfaulting), but 
from the web it's finding the GNU or whatever ones and working fine.

Looking at your stack trace, it doesn't look like an errant DSO load, so 
it might have gotten compiled in statically to PHP; check maybe your 
config.log and so forth.

just an idea,
