Bug #24318 basename failing on UNC paths

PHP Version: 4.3.2 OS: Windows 2k
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

All running on Windows 2k with Apache 1.3.27 where DocumentRoot in Apache configuration was set to '//w2kserver/data/website/root'

  $file = basename(__FILE__);
  echo $file;

$file was being set to '\\w2kserver\data\website\root\test.php'

Mapped the drive to N: so it now looks like 'n:/website/root' and update the Apache config and $file is now 'test.php'

\ is the real directory separator in windows. Not bug.
(And apache config has nothing to do with this)

I realise Apache has nothing to do with it, I was just trying to give as much helpful information as I could.

Unfortunately, Apache will not accept \ as the directory separator (I've tried) and I had to use /.

Also, the PHP documentation for basename states that both slash (/) and backslash (\) are used as path separator character.
