mysql_num_rows() is randomly failing for me on any script with any SQL query. mysql_query() doesn't return false, and mysql_error() and mysql_errno() return nothing. Happens on both 4.2.2 and 4.2.3. I checked all SQL queries that this happens with and they run fine on the database server(s). The exact error message I get is:

[18-Sep-2002 21:31:46] PHP Warning:  mysql_num_rows(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /www/shared/sql.lib on line 99

(taken from the error_log)

The same thing seems to be happening on bugs.php.net. When I search for something, I randomly get the following errors:

Warning: mysql_numrows(): 4 is not a valid MySQL result resource in /local/Web/sites/php-bugs-web/search.php on line 119

Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): 4 is not a valid MySQL result resource in /local/Web/sites/php-bugs-web/search.php on line 139
