Comment 1 Joe Orton 2009-02-11 10:48:10 EST
This is indicative of a bug in the PHP script causing a recursive function call, which will crash the PHP interpreter:

#20086 0x00002b4aac9339cc in execute () from /etc/httpd/modules/libphp5.so
#20087 0x00002b4aac9432c2 in ?? () from /etc/httpd/modules/libphp5.so

if you install php-debuginfo and httpd-debuginfo (try "debuginfo-install httpd php") then printing r->filename from an ap_* stack frame can help identify the script in question.
