phpexcel not only crashing apache, but also deleting httpd.exe

I've downloaded the 1.8 version of phpexcel and sometimes, when i'm testing the "01simple.php" sample (native), apache crashes and also removes the httpd.exe file.

I had to create a backup of httpd.exe and put into "apache\bin" everytime it crashes.

Have no idea why this is happening.. Anyone?

Using xampp 1.8.3, apache 2.4.

I find this incredibly hard to believe: there is nothing in PHPExcel that could delete your httpd.exe (it's open source, so you can check for yourself).... I can't even believe that simply running 01simple.php could crash Apache: PHP should be running threaded with theApache SAPI, so as a worst case (and even then highly unlikely unless you're hitting memory limits, which 01simple shouldn't do) it might kill its own thread; but it suggests a fundamental problem with apache if the death of a child thread could also kill the parent
