    This release breaks phpunit coverage reports. It just hangs indefinitely. Haven’t dig this much as this hit me hard and I have to rollback to 5.5.21 packages. The only log I have is gdb trace of the stuck process.

    I understand, that this might not be enough to debug the issue, my best guess is related to xdebug and generating coverage reports within phpunit.

    @Igor : thank for your investigation and for your bug report. I’m very sorry for this issue. I’ll try to update Xdebug (BTW the package from Dotdeb is Xdebug 2.3.1) when it’s fixed.
