PHP upgrade to v5.2.10

Last night I was upgrading my web server to PHP v5.2.10 (from v5.2.8)  
and everything seemed to go ok, no warnings or major gotchas. But  
once I began using it, I could see there were some real problems with  
the time() and date() functions. It's possible that I'm just using  
these two functions in ways that are either wrong (but have up to now  
served to accomplish the task I was seeking to do) or are no longer  
allowed, for security reasons, in which case I will need to develop a  
work-around. Or something is going wrong with the update. I'm writing  
to this list to see if anyone else has experienced this same problem,  
or if you all might have some ideas as to what's going on here.

Some additional info: I am running PHP on a Dual G4 PPC Mac, Apache  
(that comes with Mac OS X, not Apache 2), and MySQL from MacPorts.
