It's a GD problem.
GD 2.0.1 is still BETA.

Thanks for the prompt response, and I agree entirely about persistence of functions!  
Since I've now seen the deprecation notice under imageDashedLine() and know what to 
change in my code, should I marked this as closed?

I made this a documentation problem, because it's not really a bug in PHP.

I complained about this too, a while ago (bug 11663).

The way it works in 4.0.6 is using imagesetstyle
with imageline, this is in new documentation at

However, IMHO:

A function should not suddenly stop working. It either
should be dropped, or should continue to work as before.
At least not between minor releases. At least not without
_any_ warnings in release notes. (A mention about GD library
version change is not enough)
_any_ warnings in release notes. (A mention about GD library
version change is not enough)

I worked around it with this (my client still has 4.0.5, I upgraded
to 4.0.6):

function MDashedLine($image, $x0, $y0, $x1, $y1, $fg, $bg)
    if (PHP_VERSION == "4.0.5") {
        ImageDashedLine($image, $x0, $y0, $x1, $y1, $fg);
    else {
        $st = array($fg, $fg, $fg, $fg, $bg, $bg, $bg, $bg);
        ImageSetStyle($image, $st);
        ImageLine($image, $x0, $y0, $x1, $y1, IMG_COLOR_STYLED);
} // MDashedLine

Using PHP 4.0.6, GD 2.0.1, Apache 1.3.19, and a TrueColor image, this code:

  $img = imageCreateTrueColor (64, 64);
  $wht = imageColorAllocate ($img, 255, 255, 255);
  imageFill ($img, 0, 0, $wht);
  $red = imageColorAllocate ($img, 255, 0, 0);
  $x1 = 16; $y1 = 16; $x2 = 48; $y2 = 48;
  imageDashedLine ($img, $x1, $y1, $x1, $y2, $red);
  imageDashedLine ($img, $x1, $y1, $x2, $y2, $red);
  imageDashedLine ($img, $x1, $y1, $x2, $y1, $red);
  imageDashedLine ($img, $x2, $y2, $x1, $y2, $red);
  imageDashedLine ($img, $x1, $y2, $x2, $y1, $red);
  imageDashedLine ($img, $x2, $y1, $x2, $y2, $red);
  header ("Content-type: image/png");
  imagePNG ($img);

Should produce a red square with diagonal lines.  Instead it produces only the 
vertical lines, in a PNG found at
