You could try to pull whole PEAR 1.9.3 from SVN and test if it works.

And I guess PEAR people would be happy if you report new bugs along
the way. (Something could be caused by pulling incomplete fix from
1.9.3 to fix new CVE caused by another incomplete fix for different
CVE...  argh, so we have incomplete fixes on top of incomplete fixes

Thanks for debugging the issue, it's much appreciated.
