config: php 4.0.6 win32 binary dist, apache 1.3.20.

while calling getimagesize on a file with relative path or via URL works, it fails to find a file specified via absolute path.
example:

verified path via browser is:
http:/127.0.0.1/pics/foo/blah.jpg

from a script in directory /pics called:
getimagesize("foo/blah.jpg") .. works
getimagesize("http:/127.0.0.1/pics/foo/blah.jpg") .. works
getimagesize("/pics/foo/blah.jpg") .. fails:
Unable to open '/pics/foo/blah.jpg' for reading.

Are you sure that is the right path and not relative to your document root?  It wants the real on-disk absolute path.

/pics/foo/blah.jpg
Means on Windows, in a php script:
[current drive, ie. C]:\pics\foo\blah.jpg
On all platforms, in a request to a webserver, it means:
[documentroot]/pics/foo/blah.jpg
Use "$DOCUMENT_ROOT/pics/foo/blah.jpg" in your PHP-script to emulate this behaviour.
