The PHP function passthru works without errors in our production environment (PHP4.0.6).

Passthru in the latest CVS produces no output at all. Also, no errors or notices are seen in the error_log.

Is this a known problem ?

I'm using the PHP_4_3 CVS (right now php4-STABLE-200302251030).

Something as simple as this :
passthru('echo "Hello"');

produces no output (and no errors).
No other combinations of single and double quotes give different results..

I've got similar on Redhat9.0 when trying to compile PHP-4.3.2RC4:

Bug #22414: passthru() does not read data correctly [ext/standard/tests/file/bug22414.phpt]
make: *** [test] Error 1
+ exit 1

i've got same error when building php-4.3.2 
on VineSeed (Vine Linux development version). 
It occurs when doing make test 
before installing /usr/bin/php.
See README.TESTING for details.
