output_buffering is Off by default, but not with the development profile:

; output_buffering
;   Default Value: Off
;   Development Value: 4096
;   Production Value: 4096

I understand why output buffering is enabled in production, however I can't see a reason why it would be disabled by default but enabled in development. I haven't found any rationale for this situation, but my impression is that this is a bug.

This isn't a bug. The idea here is that you should know if you are turning on 
output buffering since there can be some side effects as described in the sample 
ini files. Without an ini file, we play it safe and default it to off. If you use 
either the php.ini-development or php.ini-production files, chances are you have 
read through them and thus have some understanding of what you are enabling.
