Hello,

I have a strange problem with PHPExcel where it crashes my local Apache server whenever I try to upload a file using a read filter. When I try to access the web page, it loads halfway then gives me a "Connection interrupted" error message.

My configuration:
Windows 7 Home Premium
PHPExcel 1.7.9
WAMP 2.2
Apache 2.2.21
PHP 5.3.10

And it's apparently not my code, since most of the examples included in the documentation produce this behavior too. This is pretty baffling since I had been using the library for the last month without any problem, until I tried using read filters to load a file in chunks.

The PHP error log is completely empty, and the Apache log only shows the following message:

[Fri Dec 20 07:43:10 2013] [notice] Parent: child process exited with status 255 -- Restarting.

Do you have any idea what could cause this, and how it could be solved or circumvented?
