Hi John,

Just saw your blog today on Andi's PHP5 / Oracle article.  

One of the two bugs you sited in your previous email was one that I opened
(http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=30808)  I'm not sure what the case is with
the 4.3.x line, but my hunch this issue is 'bigger' than PHP5.  More
troubling is tony2001 response to my bug report (we don't want to turn on
the noted fix, but will implement something workable with PDO).  I'm anxious
to hear his reply to my follow-up: it makes no sense to me that oracle users
will have to settle for broken logon functions (with the fix sitting
commented in the current code) or abandond the oci8 library all together for
PDO when it hits the streets (which will be some time).

Subject: [PHP-DB] Re: oci8 cannot connect after restarting DB


After rereading your post again, i realise you mentioned it's happening with

non-persistent connections also. That puzzles me. Perhaps we are talking 
about multiple bugs here. In general, I have not found PHP5 and oci8 to be 
very stable, and would not recommend moving anything production to use PHP5 
just yet.
