Description: define("named_constant")

Making this change in oci8.c

#ifdef ZTS 
/* OCI_DEFAULT was OCI_THREADED on the above line*/

Now the defined() does not have a problem.  This makes me reasonably sure that it is 
OCI8 walking on other memory.  By changing OCI_THREADED to OCI_DEFAULT oci does not 
use it's own memory sharing features in threaded environments.  

This removes any benifit that may be gained by a threaded environment, but also cause 
PHP not to crash.  I find the PHP not crashing much more productive.  ;-)

Will have to work on OCI source to take advantage of threaded environments.  Think it 
will be a major re-write of OCI8.c for this, because other attemts of a quick source 
fix have been unsuccessful. 

For now, this works.

User feedback:

I'm using the latest snapshot's on win32.

Getting some needed practice with MSVC...

I think the problem is that OCI is walking on TSRM
local storage.  I haven't been able to verify it, but
my gut says it's so.

Are you using PHP 4.0.1? If so, could you please try 
with the latest release, 4.0.4pl1?

Taking a shot in the dark, hoping this bug comes to sombody who "knows" attention.

Prior comments are somewhat misleading.  I'm using OCI8, and also Manuel Lemos' 

Parusing through the source, I've noticed that there are some constants defined for 
OCI8 (which are documented):

I question this CONST_PERSISTENT value.  Is it possible that the persistence is 
helping non persistent constants (in the php code) strattle the void between pages?

BTW: what does _zval_dtor in the source mean? Specifically, "dtor"

A define on php4isapi has a tendency to bleed over to the next page load.  refresh and 
a completely different page have retain a defined constant.

echo (defined("anything")?"anything defined":"anything not defined");

echo (defined("anything")?"anything defined":"anything not defined");

after pointing browser at test1.php
test 2.php contains "anything defined", instead of "not"

With this code at the top of an include file, the results are unpretictable.

 define("METABASE_MYSQL_INCLUDED",1); of include file...

require_once(); seems to work though.
