Description macker 2007-09-20 23:42:57 UTC
Description of problem:
The imageftbbox() function requires 4 arguments, with an optional fifth
argument.  Due to a bug, the fifth argument is required.  This was fixed in PHP

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. PHP script that calls imageftbbox() with 4 arguments
Actual results:
PHP Warning:  Wrong parameter count for imageftbbox()

Expected results:
Normal output of function

Additional info:
Getting around this bug requires passing an array (can be empty) as a fifth
argument.  However, if using prefab PHP scripts, this requires custom
modification to the script.  This may not be possible in certain cases
("encoded" PHP scripts), making the only options a custom "wrapper" for this
function, or upgrading PHP to a version not provided by Red Hat for v3.  None of
these are acceptable options.

Should be a simple bugfix to backport and include, particularly if a bugfix or
security release is being made for other reasons.

Thanks Jiri.

If this bug had been fixed 5 years ago, that would've been useful, but I think that closing it WONTFIX now is acceptable.

That said, I hope that this is an unfortunate exception, and not representative of Red Hat policy or methodology for managing workload of bug queues, i.e. ignoring the bug for 5 years until it's past EOL.
