The dbminsert and dbmreplace functions insert erroneous values into the database.

Here is a short script that should identify the problem:


$dbm = dbmopen("test.db", "n");

for ($c=0; $c < 100; $c++) {
  dbminsert($dbm, $c, $c);

for ($c=0; $c < 100; $c++) {
  echo(dbmfetch($dbm, $c) .  "<br>");

dbmclose ($dbm);


This is what I get for the first 11 lines of output:


The remaining output is correct.

I am using the precompiled win32 binary with iPlanet on NT.

If you could send any replies to this email address as well as the other one listed I would appreciate it:

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with PHP.
Unfortunately your version of PHP is too old -- the problem
might already be fixed. Please download a new PHP
version from

If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest
versions of PHP, please change the PHP version on this bug report
to the version you tested and change the status back to "Open".
Again, thank you for your continued support of PHP.
