I've had my fair share of trouble regarding PHP4 and PHP5 crashing Apache 
with certain extensions, as documented here:



and here:

It happens with PHP4, PHP5, Apache 1.x and Apache 2.x.

My workaround is a hackish script that reorders the problematic extensions 
to the end of extension.ini, and in a specific order. It Works For Me, but 
YMMV. I'm glad you were able to get around the problem by simply disabling 
an extension, but some of us aren't so lucky :)
