The MySQLi PHP extension has a build option, MYSQLI_USE_MYSQLND, that selects between calling the old library libmysql (FALSE) and the new native driver mysqlnd (TRUE). When built to call mysqlnd, the client flags passed in to mysqli_real_connect() (e.g. MYSQLI_CLIENT_FOUND_ROWS) are properly passed down. However, when built to call libmysql, the passed client flags are ignored. I can see no reason for this except that it was an oversight in the change that added the flags argument:

The attached trivial patch fixes this.

As current releases of Fedora/RHEL/CentOS (and probably other distributions and platforms) build the MySQLi PHP extension to call libmysql, this is still a relevant issue.
