Bug description:  HTTP_ENV_VARS is bigger, overwrites session vars

After updating my CVS version of PHP, a dump of HTTP_ENV_VARS showed several new 
environment variables that weren't set in an earlier version of PHP (4.0.3pl1 for 

Specifically in my case, HTTP_ENV_VARS['USER'] is now being set.  It took me a while 
to figure out why my scripts, which use $USER as a session variable, were getting 
messed up.

Any reason why these env vars are getting set now where they weren't before?

I have register_globals turned on.  I suppose I should turn it off, and refer to 
everything as HTTP_*_VARS if I need it, right?

Finally, if register_globals is off, is $GLOBALS useable?  I have some functions that 
manipulate variables in the global scope.
