Even I have exactly the same issue as discussed in Bug #36526, this does *not* happen in PHP 5.0.1, but this is a BUG in 5.1.2 

I am using gzcompress the same issue, also the issue is the same for gzinflate/gzdeflate.

The  script is like this...


When send it over _REQUEST.. and trying to reverse it to get the $packeddata,
I get the data error for gzcompress...

$unpackeddata = unserialize(gzuncompress(base64_decode($_REQUEST["data"])));

I need a fix for this, as of now, I have moved back to 5.0.1 again...

If urlencode needs to be used, why was it working fine in the earlier versions???

This is a BUG in the uncompress code.. please have a relook into this...

Test case....

$packeddata = array(y2data => 0,array(1,2,3),array(1,2,3));
echo "<a href=\"page2.php?data=".$data."\">Call Page 2</a>";
if ($_REQUEST["data"]) {
   $unpackeddata =unserialize(gzuncompress(base64_decode($_REQUEST["data"])));
print_r ($unpackeddata);

Hope this makes complete.. on clicking the page2 link from
the page 1 gives this error... this happens
only when we send array data....

Warning: gzuncompress() [function.gzuncompress]: data error in D:\WebHome\home\testcase\page2.php on line 4
