If you need more information please ask instead of closing this bug.

LVARCHAR is a Informix text field type of unspecified length similar ro MySQL TEXT field type.

To reproduce this bug follow these steps:

- Create a table with a LVARCHAR field.
- INSERT a row with some data in that field.
- SELECT that row.
- Use ifx_fetch_row to retrieve the field value.

When you access to the field value you will see warnings because the string value that is retrieved is not a NUL terminated string.

//create connection
    $connection=ifx_connect("audit@ifmx00296")
        or die("Couldn't create connection.");

    //create SQL statement
    $sql="select *
    from pjktest
    where col1 matches '$hname'";

//execute SQL query and get result
    $sql_result=ifx_query($sql,$connection)
        or die("Couldn't execute query");

    //format result in HTML table
    ifx_htmltbl_result($sql_result,"border=10");

Using Apache 1.3.22,PHP 4.2.2,Informx 9.21.UC2,ESQL 9.40,AIX 4.3.3.0.
col1 type lvarchar is only column in table, query fails when row is NOT
NULL

This Bug was closed as fixed in PHP 4.0.0 but I still have the problem.
