Actually, I guess nothing is working with UNC pathes in PHP. Windows file naming 
schemes suck very badly.

Web Server : Apache 1.3.9 (win32)

Reproduce :

On a Windows NT box with PHP and Apache, create a page the calls the file_exists func 
on a known machinesharefile

You will need to create a share on that machine or another.

For example :

if (file_exists("\\machine\share\fred.txt") {
  echo "Exists<BR>";
} else {
  echo "Does not Exist<BR>";

The file_exists function will always return false.

The function works fine with drive letter associations, but not for UNC notation on
