Yes, I just did confirm and see the following:
0f3754a works okay
0f3754a is broken for me

The degree of brokenness seems to vary depending on a few factors (what 
URL I load, what I've configured as my auth_type, etc) -- the three 
options I've seen are:

1) completely blank browser,
2) Menu structure (navigation area links for documentation, logout, etc 
and main page tab structure) but no databases available and no 
error/warning messages, or
3) Same as (2) but with errors/warning messages.

I've seen the problem on two similar Debian Squeeze systems that are 
different machines but running the same general configuration.

Additionally, I can confirm that when I update a system to Wheezy, which 
has PHP 5.4.4, MySQL 5.3.31, and Apache 2.2.2. As a reminder, the broken 
installs had PHP 5.3.3, MySQL 5.1.66, and Apache 2.2.16.

My system works, I have no problem updating to Wheezy, but I can keep 
the system running if we want to do more troubleshooting. It's up to the 
group to decide if this is worth looking in to.

Thanks again
