a scripts located in open_basedir path is unable to include another script in the same directory with error " open_basedir restriction in effect. File is in wrong directory" where the first script is included
from another script.

You can reproduce this situation with 3 php scripts with safe_mode on:

/usr/local/http-docs/common/scripts/test.php --------------


/usr/local/http-docs/common/lib/test/test.php -------------


/usr/local/http-docs/common/lib/test/hello.php -------------

echo "hello world";

Apache configuration to reproduce the situation --------------

<Directory "/usr/local/http-docs/common/lib/">
    Options none
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all

Alias /scripts/ "/usr/local/http-docs/common/scripts/"

<Directory "/usr/local/http-docs/common/scripts/">
    Options none
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    php_admin_value open_basedir /usr/local/http-docs/common/scripts/:/usr/local/http-docs/common/lib

        DocumentRoot /usr/local/http-docs/test
        php_admin_value open_basedir /usr/local/http-docs/test:/usr/local/http-docs/common/lib:/var/tmp:/usr/local/lib/php
        php_admin_value doc_root /usr/local/http-docs/test

to reproduce the error just go to
altough phpinfo() on /usr/local/http-docs/common/lib/test/test.php
shows that open_basedir includes /usr/local/http-docs/common/lib
php fails to open hello.php

php configure line (Solaris):

./configure --with-mysql --with-apache=$(APACHE) \
                --enable-track-vars --enable-versioning \
                --enable-sockets --enable-dbase \
                --enable-exif \

BTW, all scripts and directories have correct permissions and include_path is ./:/usr/local/http-docs/common/lib:/usr/local/lib/php

Please do not submit the same bug more than once. An existing
bug report already describes this very problem. Even if you feel
that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. Because of this, we hope you add your comments
to the original bug instead.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
