Bug Type: mcrypt related
Operating system: 
PHP Version: 4.0.5
Assigned To: derick


I find it very strange that mcrypt does not report any error. (Are there things about 
a Signal 11, or Segmentation fault in your apache error_log?)
mcrypt works fine here, on both my development server here (Linux) and another 
production server (OpenBSD).

Do I correctly understand, the strings you want to encrypt are not being encrypted?

We have just upgraded to the latest version of PHP in order to take advantage of some 
new features, particularly those dealing with arrays.

Our user accounts store (amongst other things) two variables, the username and 
password in a mySQL database.

The password is encrypted using mcrypt. The key for which is provided by generating an 
md5 string of the given username. decryption does not occur; encrypted strings are 
compared for similarity using strcmp().

Ever since we upgraded to 4.0.5, *all* mcrypt functions are failing - no encryption 
takes place and PHP returns no error, simply failing to produce anything. 

Please fix this ASAP. This is not a code issue, it is an issue with the mcrypt 
functionality since the latest release of PHP. 

Many thanks.
