This appears to still be a problem in php4-3.10.  I am having this exact
same problem...though I cannot find a situation that fixes it yet.

you were right. just installed php-5.0.3 and the problem has been fixed.
closing this bug

I am not in a position to compile 5.0.3RC2. But I have posted this bug:
http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=31094

If this produces no result, I will test again with 5.0.3 when it is
released.

They may, they may not.  Make the point that most PHP functions gladly
accept false/null for optional string arguments without causing
problems.

Before that, please try the latest release candidate mentioned in my
prior comment, just to make sure it hasn't been fixed yet.

I have searched the php bugs db for entries relating to mysqli_connect
but found nothing.

I am not sure I agree that this is a php problem. Basically mysqli.php
is calling the mysqli_connect() php function with all optional
parameters but failing to provide valid values for some of them (ie the
port and socket params). 

If I say to the php guys, here I want to be able to call
mysqli_connect() with socket=false and expect it to just ignore the
parameter eventhough I have passed it, then they will just tell me to
not do that, right?
