Without an example to look at, I may be mis-understanding your situation.  
But it sounds like this may be a scoping issue: trying to use a global 
($HTTP_POST_VARS) within a function without using the special "global" 

This won't work:

function adduser()
   echo "LOCAL SCOPE: " . $HTTP_POST_VARS['user'];

This will:

function adduser()
   global $HTTP_POST_VARS['user'];
   echo "GLOBAL SCOPE: " . $HTTP_POST_VARS['user'];

If this is the problem you're having, you can find more information at:
