Hi guys,

This bug in MediaWiki [1] points to a bug report against PHP [2] that
seems to be a fundamental problem for MediaWiki. In the words of the
MediaWiki developers, 'its broken'.

Any chance of a PHP roll-back? I realise the circumstances under which
PHP was upgraded were exceptional, but hopefully the 5.2 branch is
being security bug-fixed? http://php.net/index.php - "Security
Enhancements and Fixes in PHP 5.2.12"...

In the long run, apparently RC1 fixes the problem in the 5.3.1 branch

We're experiencing lots of problems with the PDBWiki website that have
been created by this bug... Considering the recent problems on the
server, would multiple virtual hosts be an option?
