PHP can not read php3.ini because open_base_dir restrictions 
after restart. 

If I restrict open_base_dir=.;  (dot;) in php3.ini file, after restart, 
php logs this in log file.

It's security bug, after wrong restart, safemod go off. After that is possible
write a php3 page with this command:

<? copy("/etc/passwd","./mypersonalpasswdcopy") ?>

I reproduce the bug in 2 servers, php 3.0.6 until 3.0.12,
and bug 1573 say words like that.

Bug 1573 is "open" since  1999-06-20

thanks and good work 

Gomes, Marcio
