I'm closing this and re-opening a more detailed bug report.  This is only indirectly 
related to open_basedir now.

Reclassified as documentation problem. 

On page:

The directives should be somehow grouped better
to see e.g. which ones can be changed with php_value
and which are only changeable with php_admin_value.

Fixed in php4.03pl1.

i should use 
php_admin_value open_basedir '.'
instead of
php_value open_basedir '.'

Please make it clear in manual.

Should be fixed in php4.03pl1.

open_basedir string
Limit the files that can be opened by PHP to the specified directory-tree. 

When a script tries to open a file with, for example, fopen or gzopen, the location of 
the file is checked. When the file is outside the specified directory-tree, PHP will 
refuse to open it. All symbolic links are resolved, so it's not possible to avoid this 
restriction with a symlink. 

The special value . indicates that the directory in which the script is stored will be 
used as base-directory

I don't need full path - i want to restrict users from accessing files in upperlevel 

as Mr. Zeev Suraski said:
It's not related to open_basedir, there's a problem in the php_value system in 4.0.3.

You should be using full path with the open_basedir directive as far as I know. Can 
you please try and let us know of the results?
