Please let me know how that works for you.  I don't remember the specifics
(if we where testing using plogon, nlogon or just logon), but we did try and
implement that fix and it didn't work for us.

Yes, I just found 30808.  It's suspended because the fix is stated in 
the discussion (uncomment out a small section of oci8.c), but for 
performance reasons they don't want to make this part of the standard code.

I've rebuilt php5 now with the change in place and will see if this 
fixes the problem for my systems.  I can confirm that it's at least
