For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 4:4.3.10-18. Builds for hppa and m68k will be provided later
once they are available.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 4:4.4.4-4 of php4 and version 5.1.6-6 of php5.
We recommend that you upgrade your php4 packages.
