According to the documentation PDOStatement::closeCursor() […] leaves the statement in a state that enables it to be executed again. The example below works at least with pdo_mysql, pdo_sqlite and pdo_pgsql but doesn't work with pdo_oci.

Test script:
$conn = new PDO(

$stmt = $conn->prepare('SELECT ? FROM DUAL');
$value = $stmt->fetchColumn();


$value = $stmt->fetchColumn();

Expected result:
string(1) "1"
string(1) "2"

Actual result:
string(1) "1"

When testing on PHP 7.2.12, the PDO statement columns remaining set after closing the cursor seems to cause the issue.

If instead closeCursor were to remove the stmt->columns (though this is probably incorrect to do), the result becomes correct because PDOStatement::execute gets past:

if (stmt->dbh->alloc_own_columns && !stmt->columns) {

so that pdo_stmt_describe_columns can be called, which will then populate the column and return 2.
