Bug #61820 using ob_gzhandler will complain about headers already sent when no compression

PHP Version: 5.4.0 OS: Linux

 [2012-04-23 00:19 UTC]
When using ob_gzhandler with PHP 5.4.0+, PHP will emit warnings after flushing 
more than once (it looks like it's trying to modify headers on each flush).

This problem didn't exist in PHP 5.3.

Test script:


echo "PHP VERSION ".phpversion()."\n";

echo "This is confusing:\n";

Expected result:
PHP VERSION 5.5.0-dev
This is confusing:

Actual result:
PHP VERSION 5.5.0-dev
This is confusing:

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output 
started at php-src/moo.php:6) in php-src/moo.php on line 10
