If you want me to have a look at this, I need to be able to reproduce this on a Linux platform. That means, I need to have your extension's source code.
I can't go on just a Windows crash dump.

Considering that the entension is proprietary code from the company I work for, that may prove difficult.

What I get from the debug call stack is this:

In case you were curious about this, I was able to resolve this issue. The problem was a zend_string pointer not being properly freed (efree() was called on the zend_string->val instead of calling zend_string_release().

When I updated to PHP 7.2.1 the crash location changed from inside the xdebug extension to the mysqldn extension. Fun times :)

OK. Good to know it wasn't in Xdebug then. Cheers!
