PHP MapScript 4.8.1 and PHP 5.1.2

We were having a problem running PHP MapScript 4.8.1 under PHP 5.1.2 
(Red Hat Linux). Using TrueType fonts caused segmentation faults; bitmap 
fonts did not. The server guys have now changed things so that our 
application runs under PHP 4.4.2, and "magically" the problem went away. 
I am not entirely convinced that it was a PHP 5 problem.

My question: Can anyone definitively say that PHP MapScript 4.8.1 does 
or does not work under PHP 5.1.2, particularly with regard to the use of 
TrueType fonts? The last message I can find on this topic is a year old, 
with no clear conclusion.
