I can read root owned files (/etc/passwd) with ReadFile()
or File() even if phtml file and dir is owned by
non-root user. phpinfo reports safemode=1. Include()
in the same script on the same file returns permission 
error, which is right.

BTW: Why there's not a Bug type 'Security'?

My config line:

./configure --with-apache=../apache_1.3b5 --with-config-file-path=/usr/internet/apache/conf --disable-debug --enable
-safe-mode --with-exec-dir=/usr/internet/apache/safe-bin --enable-memory-limit
