Zend has been struggling with this one for several releases; there's a little bit of information on the Zend forum, but it's spotty. It looks like some things were fixed in 3.2.4, but in some configurations (i.e. FastCGI) the bug remains. For now, I'd suggest leaving the patch in place. Hopefully Zend will get things straightened out soon.
