    Since updating to 5.5.17, we have problems with horde mail latest and with owncloud apps – on two different servers, and on both servers everything is 10 to 50 x slower than before. I am looking for error messages, but heads up – there might be a big problem with 5.5.17

    lots of timeouts, db connections unexpectedly lost … pages not resolving – both servers are running latest apache 2.2

    Having issues with MYSQL_CLIENT_SSL if you run script with cli it will hang. I’ve switched from php5-mysqlnd to php5-mysql and works fine, switch back and the same issue arrises. I’d use php5-mysql but always receive the known headers error.

    No issues with php5 5.5.16

    Broke our application as well using “stream_socket_client()” with tls. It’s not recommend to apply this patch.
