This issue comes up very regularly, I believe there is a 5.2.6 variant 
of php in the testing repo that I haven't used but others on the list 
have and so far no bad reports. As this is .el5, the enterprise linux 
version is does not always have the latest and greatest, but that's the 
price for tried, tested and true. HTH
