php4-pear doing segfault after pear upgrade-all (plus debian bug 311267)

Hello !

It seems there is a BIG problem with current pear support inside Debian. Does anyone know why it did that? Is there any fix or alternative (and maybe unofficial) package available for Sarge for php? It seems it began to appear those last 7 days, at least I'm sure it was not there before the 1st of September. To me, it seems the problem is there because pear upgraded to 1.4.0, which was 2 days ago (on the 18th).

It has been reported here:


that we have to do a upgrade-all. The only problem is that it segfault, as shown above.

Not having a good pear support can be a real problem for me. I don't want to waste my time recompiling php... Any idea?
