I don't have an obvious way to reproduce it, so I'm really not sure
that it isn't bogus according to your definition. I did make clear
that it only appeared on one of my systems:

I also included the features output that (I think) Ken Moffat had
suggested obtaining. Finally, I tried to file it against mail/cclient
rather than lang/php55.

All I can do at this point is to hope for the best.

Thanks to all!
