On Windows NT with PHP 3.0.11 on Apache 1.3.6 when using an URL
with path info data, PHP chokes and tells that it could not open the
input file. like this:


The path info data should go into the PATH_INFO variable (on Unix versions
the path info is parsed correctly from the URL).

I am sure that this has to do with the way PHP has to be installed on WinNT
(ScriptAliasing etc.) so there might not be a solution. This is not a bug per se,
but relevant to some developers (e.g. someone might be using PATH_INFO
instead of using HTTP GET variables to keep track of states etc.).
