I'm using apache1.3b5 and php3.0 at sunos5.5.1

Look at the following script(say "test.phtml").
    <form method=post action=show.phtml>
        New id=<input type=text size=20 name=newid>
    </form>
    <?php
         echo "<br>Your current is $REMOTE_USER<br>";
    ?>

and in show.phtml,
     <?php echo "oldid = $REMOTE_USER<br>"; 
           echo "newid = $newid<br>";
     ?>

test.html and show.phtml is located in the same directory
protected by user-authentification.

Load test.phtml, and enter new id(say "smith").
     Newid [         ]
     Your currnet id is SMITH
(SMITH is auth-user name)

then, show.phtml prints
     oldid =
     newid = smith

$REMOTE_USER is lost at post method.

The REMOTE_USER environment variable is not controlled
by PHP.  The most probable reason here is that the POST
method isn't password protected and only the GET is.

Waiting for user response.

It's safe to assume that there will be no user response
by now...
