The manual page for oci_close() ends with this note:
"Note: The oci_close() function does not close the underlying database connections created with oci_pconnect()."

However, the manual page for the oci8.persistent_timeout setting highlights this:
"Note: In PHP 5.3 (PECL OCI8 1.3), persistent connections can be closed with oci_close()."

Does this second note mean the first note is incorrect?

Or, does the wording of the second note mean that oci_close does close persistent connections, but **only** in 5.3?
