Comment (by frettled):

 @gitlost I've got thousands of WP installations that are monitored, none
 of them mine, and installing a zend extension in all of them to catch this
 kind of problem seems a bit excessive. Additionally, I don't think I've
 got access to enough disk space to store that.

 The PHP version in question is the latest 5.5 with security patches
 backported from 5.6, running under suphp.

 This also seems largely irrelevant, though, because we already know where
 the problem is and how to fix it: don't run infinite loops. Never!
