I reported this bug before, only to have one of your 
developers dissmiss it as bogus and an issue for PHP 
support which is pretty damned insulting. I would 
appreciate it if someone could try the referenced class 
file and see if they aren't able to reproduce the error.

Mail sent using mail() with attached files sends the 
mail, but the attached file arrives with bytes missing. 
I believe this to be a bug because the identical code 
(note the usage of the word IDENTITICAL) works on a box 
running 4.2.3

This particular installation of PHP was compiled with: 
'./configure' '--with-apache=../apache_1.3.29' '--with-
mysql=/usr/local/mysql' '--enable-memory-limit=yes' '--
enable-debug=no' '-with-mcrypt' '--enable-ftp' '--
enable-exif' '--enable-bcmath' '--with-xml' '--with-
pspell' '--with-pgsql' '--with-mhash' '--with-ming' '--
with-curl' '--with-gd' '--enable-gd-native-ttf' '--
enable-gd-imgstrttf' '--with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local/lib' 
'--with-png' '--with-zlib' '--with-freetype-dir=/usr/
local/include/freetype2' '--with-ttf' '--with-pdflib' 

Reproduce code:
This is the second of two mail class files that produces the error on 4.3.4 or greater:

Expected result:
On 4.2.3, mail will arrive with an intact attachment.  
On 4.3.4 or greater, the mail will arrive with an 
attachment with bytes missing.

I'm sorry you're having problems, but it's really a lot 
of work to download software and create test cases for 
bug reports. (It's not like we write those classes and 
we get lots of bugs each day.)

Why don't you report the problem to the authors of the 
mail class and see if they can reproduce it? If they 
can, they will be able to generate a PHP bug report that 
makes it easier for us to fix the problem.

OK - I'll try that.  Thank you for a much more helpful 
suggestion than the last one.

OK - well I found the problem.


I'll post something in the mail() function.
