php4-pear security update has fatal typo in /usr/share/php/XML/RPC.php

Bug #18690 reported by Brion Vibber on 2005-07-05
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

A security update for the php4-pear package today contains changes to
/usr/share/php/XML/RPC.php. Unfortunately these changes include a spurious
letter "i" at the end of a line, which causes a parse error when including the
file, thus breaking any software that uses the PEAR::XML_RPC package.

Steps to reproduce:
$ php -r 'include "XML/RPC.php";'

Actual results:
Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /usr/share/php/XML/RPC.php on
line 266

Expected results:
Program should work without fatal parse errors.

Every time.

Oh, man, manual patch editing with vi gone horribly wrong. Very sorry about
this one guys, new packages are on their way right now.
