That happens when you want to check if the windows' swapfile is a ehm... a dir.

I'm using php 4.0.6 with Apache.

Can you provide a sample script?

I have manually set windows swapfile to another partition than C:. In the root I have a file called Win386.swp and when I try to list the root dir... well, here's the code:

$dir = "/";

function listDir ($dir=".") {
    $thisDir = opendir($dir);
    while($d = readdir($thisDir)) {
        if (is_dir("$dir/$d")) {
            $listDirs[] = $d;
    return $listDirs;

I can't replicate this ..  

Suggest you upgrade PHP and re-open this bug report if you still have the problem - please, give your output or some clue as to the result you're getting as well as code another time.

Thanks -
