It isn't a debian bug, but a known feature of 5.2.5 that mostly disables the dl() function from
working properly. Prior to 5.2.5, the dl() function could load user modules at run-time, rather than
installing them site-wide in the php.ini.
I don't know how widespread the use of ioncube loader (or other dl() libs) so perhaps it doesn't
matter, but I hadn't expected 5.2.5 to be an interesting release.
The fix is to copy the loader file to a known location, and then add this line to your
zend_extension = /usr/local/lib/php5/ioncube_loader_lin_5.2.so
