Do you happen to have an NT machine you can try and reproduce this on? I am on Windows 
2000 and it works.

No, new version 4.0.5 didn't solve my problem, testesd under win98.

Works fine in latest CVS under NT.
Please try 4.0.5 which should be released today and report back if your problem has 
been solved.

On w98 and w98se it is not possible to change from root directory (eg. c:) to a 
relative subdirectory (e.g. windows). There is a delay of about 1 second. The same 
when accessing file functions (eg. is_dir, filesize) on filenames in the root 
directory without path (e.g. filesize ("msdos.sys"), no result is returned.

Try this script:

function mychdir ($text, $dir, $works) {
  echo "$text '$dir': "; flush();
  chdir ($dir);
    "<font color=". ($works ? "green" : "red").">".
    str_replace ("\", "/", getcwd ())."</FONT><BR>"; 
  flush ();
mychdir ("change to root", "/", true);
mychdir ("change to existing full path", "c:/windows/temp", true);
mychdir ("change to parent", "..", true);
mychdir ("change to relative subdir", "temp", true);
mychdir ("change to parent-parent", "../..", true);
mychdir ("change to root", "/", true);
mychdir ("change to relative subdir from root - does not work (notice the delay)", 
"windows", false);
