[php-maint] Bug#623220: php5: crypt() function with empty salt returns empty string

Package: php5
Version: 5.3.3-7+squeeze1
Severity: normal

Since Debian Squeeze the behaviour of the crypt() function changed.
With an empty second argument (salt), the result is always an empty string
instead of a hash string (see documentation for the crypt() function).

$ php -r 'var_dump(crypt("",""));'
string(0) ""

$ php -r 'var_dump(crypt("test",""));'
string(0) ""
