Summary0006175: Concatenation of string and bool leads to wrong cache hits in oxConfig::getDir()
DescriptionIn the *function getDir()* of *oxConfig* the $sCacheKey is generated by
$sCacheKey = $sPath . "_{$blIgnoreCust}{$blAbsolute}";
However, both $blIgnoreCust and $blAbsolute are booleans, and casting them to a string yields:
- "1" if true
- "" if false
Thus, $blIgnoreCust = true, $blAbsolute = true gives: _11
and $blIgnoreCust = true, $blAbsolute = false gives: _1
and $blIgnoreCust = false, $blAbsolute = true gives: _1
and $blIgnoreCust = false, $blAbsolute = false gives: _
As you can easily see, the two cases where one of the variables is true and the other is false lead to the same $sCacheKey, which leads erroneous cache hits.

This bug can easily be fixed by casting the bools to non-empty values, e.g. to "1" for true and "0" for false.
