Description:
------------
When renaming a directory, say ../mydir to ../del/mydir, it seems that php forget the current dir - sets it to nothing. I can resolve the problem by getting the current dir (getcwd) before the rename and setting it after (chdir).

It seems that the problem exists when renaming from a dir that is one level smaller than the rename-to dir - so when renaming from ../mydir/subdir to ../del/subdir - everything is ok. 

I admit: This sounds strange. So it took me some time to locate the problem.

And yes: I am sure that ../del exists - this script has been working without problems on a lot of versions of php, a lot of webhotels and a lot of different setups.

Reproduce code:
---------------
mkdir("../mydir",0777);
mkdir("../del",0777);
echo "First: ".getcwd();
rename("../mydir","../del/mydir");
echo "<br>And second: ".getcwd();

Expected result:
----------------
First: /usr/home/web/web33953/kursus/admin
And second: /usr/home/web/web33953/kursus/admin

Actual result:
--------------
First: /usr/home/web/web33953/kursus/admin
And second:

Please try using this CVS snapshot:

  http://snaps.php.net/php4-STABLE-latest.tar.gz
 
For Windows:
 
  http://snaps.php.net/win32/php4-win32-STABLE-latest.zip

I can not reproduce this with latest CVS snapshot using CLI.
Please try with the CLI binary. And if it works, do tell us what webserver you might be using..
