Bug #38551 Apache2 will not load php_mysqli.dll under PHP 5.1.5

Since upgrading from PHP 5.1.4 to PHP 5.1.5 on a Windows system that was previously working, mysqli does not load.

Apache 2.0.59
PHP 5.1.5
MySQL 5.0.22
phpMyAdmin 2.8.2

I have also tried with MySQL 5.0.24 -> same problem.

After reverting to PHP 5.1.4, mysqli loads fine.

Expected result:
The file php_mysqli.dll (16-Aug-2006) appears in the C:\PHP5\ext\ directory, as it should.

The php.ini is set to load extensions as follows (and this is unchanged from PHP 5.1.4, which worked fine here):
extension_dir = "C:\PHP5\ext\"

Actual result:
The Apache error.log says the following each time Apache is restarted:

  PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic 
  library 'C:\\PHP5\\ext\\php_mysqli.dll' - The specified
  procedure could not be found.\r\n in Unknown on line 0

PHP loads otherwise, and phpMyAdmin works but gives the following error on its homepage:

  Cannot load mysqli extension. Please check your PHP

Put libmysql.dll for 5.1.5 to your PATH and restart the web-server.

Thank you, that was (almost) it.  Some unthoughtful program apparently installed its own copy of libmysql.dll into c:\Windows\System32, which comes before c:\PHP5 in my path.  Renaming the alien c:\Windows\System32\libmysql.dll to libmysql.dll.old did the trick.
