I'm using the attached patch for about 4 months 
applied over php-4.0.6-x from redHat's source 
RPMS. (I recompile php anyways because I also need 
the mcrypt extension). 
A similar patch was submitted for php-4.1 CVS. 
The Latest CVS version from PHP contains newer 
enhancements that I havn't tried yet.

Thanks for the report.  Presuming this is fixed in php-4.1.x based
packages; please reopen if this bug is reproducible in current releases.
