PHP Version: OS:


 [2009-10-27 18:47 UTC] peo at bsdlabs dot com
The platform is: 
FreeBSD 7.2-STABLE #0: Thu Oct 15 07:23:17 CEST 2009
- Problem not tied to a specific version of OS or PHP
- Vanilla installation of Horde
- Identical problem present on two servers
- Problem started to occur spring 2009
- Low server load
- Intermittent
- Comes and goes at certain times during the day. Usually, the problem will start around 11:30 CEST or 10:30 CET, last for 24h and then go away for another 24h.
	And yes, we have looked for causes for this behaviour
- Happens regardless of cache configuration in Horde, even without any caching
- Happens regardless of cache and session settings in php.ini
- The below is an *example*
- One more user on the Horde lists have reported same problem with same OS (FreeBSD)

Reproduce code:
    function factory($driver, $params = array())
        if (is_array($driver)) {
            $app = $driver[0];
            $driver = $driver[1];
        $driver = basename($driver);
        if (empty($driver) || $driver == 'none') {
            return new Horde_Cache($params);
        if (!empty($app)) {
            include_once $app . '/lib/Cache/' . $driver . '.php';
        } elseif (file_exists(dirname(__FILE__) . '/Cache/' . $driver . '.php')) {
            include_once dirname(__FILE__) . '/Cache/' . $driver . '.php';
        } else {
            include_once 'Horde/Cache/' . $driver . '.php';
        $class = 'Horde_Cache_' . $driver;
        if (class_exists($class)) {
            $cache = new $class($params);
        } else {
            $cache = PEAR::raiseError('Class definition of ' . $class . ' not found.');
        return $cache;

Expected result:
Should return memcache.php in this case, but it could be "none.php" (where the actual output will be "one.php")

Actual result:

string(7) "emcache"

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a short but complete example script to be able to reproduce
this bug ourselves. 

A proper reproducing script starts with <?php and ends with ?>,
is max. 10-20 lines long and does not require any external 
resources such as databases, etc. If the script requires a 
database to demonstrate the issue, please make sure it creates 
all necessary tables, stored procedures etc.

Please avoid embedding huge scripts into the report.

We are still trying to invent a script that reproduces the error.
The below is what we hoped would do it but it does not so it needs further refinement.

The error occurs when "basename" is fed a filename without path and once in several hundred the first character is missing.

And finally, it comes and goes, like this:

[27-Oct-2009 10:27:22] goes
[28-Oct-2009 00:26:55] comes
[28-Oct-2009 23:28:47] goes (summertime ends)
[30-Oct-2009 00:23:00] comes
[31-Oct-2009 11:40:10] goes
[02-Nov-2009 00:24:10] comes
[03-Nov-2009 11:34:41] goes
[04-Nov-2009 00:27:41] comes
[04-Nov-2009 11:28:55] goes

  for ($i=0;$i<500000000;$i++)
    if($driver != 'memcached') echo $driver."\n";
  echo "end\n";
