I have apache 1.3.27 with php 4.3.5RC3.

Trouble with incorrect applying of open_basedir on one apache child and some virtual hosts.

>[15-Mar-2004 15:09:20] PHP Warning:  main(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/usr/hosting/autod/html/price/includes/db_part/main.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (/usr/hosting/true)

[15-Mar-2004 15:10:59] PHP Warning:  (null)(): Failed opening '/usr/hosting/autod/html/apedia/law/2-4.php' for inclusion (include_path='/usr/hosting/nedug_unix/apteka/lib/php-lib:/usr/hosting/nedug_unix/apteka/include') in Unknown on line 0

That vhost have open_basedir - /usr/hosting/autod
And i have other vhosts with open_basedirs - /usr/hosting/%username%
I think open_basedir is inheriting after previons request to another vhost.

PHP 4.2.3 not have that bug.
I tryed to use all versions 4.3.0 - 4.3.5RC3, all of this versions have that bug

Are you sure you just haven't misconfigured something?
Some stray .htaccess file somewhere in there?

And we can not reproduce this without knowing how you
a) configured PHP (the ./configure line you used)
b) What you have in your httpd.conf / .htaccess files?

The ini leaking is really fixed in latest CVS and that bug definately exists in 4.2.3 too. 

Get fresh Apache sources (1.3.27 is way too old already, get  the latest which is 1.3.29) and recompile PHP. Make sure you  stop / start apache properly, restart does NOT work.
