FW On behalf of Peter Kocks:

Yes, ".:" does work in almost every case.  The case where it does not is when there is 
a chdir() in a auto prepend file.
However, the real point of this bug report has to do with backwards compatibility, 
documentation, and error messages.
Compatibility:  Changes in behavior should be announced in some formal place.  So, 
when people upgrade they can check for potential problems.
Documentation: the php.ini-dist should be changed to suggest you put in a ".:" in the 
Error message: Should be more informative in the case where the script_name is not 
accessible via the include path.  If it is the script name, say something about "." in 
path or something.

try putting . in your include path.

include_path    = ".:/usr/test/include"

Please give feedback

Create this simplest of php scripts called "index.php" in your Document Root.

   echo "hello world<br>";

in php.ini change include_path to whatever

include_path    = "/usr/test/include"

Point your browser to the index.php.  I get the warning message:

Warning: Failed opening 'index.php' for inclusion (include_path='/usr/test/include') 
in Unknown on line 0

This is new behaviour that will cause problems when php is released.  

Details on my build:


APACHE = apache_1.3.12
PHP = php-4.0.2RC1
MODSSL  = mod_ssl-2.6.6-1.3.12
Solaris 2.7
