After updating two different webservers to PHP 4.4.1 I get always a blank page with PHP 4.4.1 and mod_rewrite if you click on a link.
Start page load normal but on every additional page you see nothing. No error in error log. Happens with vBulletin and mod_rewrite and Joomla 1.0.3 with mod_rewrite enabled and apache 2.0.55. With PHP 4.4.0 and same settings in php.ini there are no problems. Only PHP version has changed....

Reproduce code:
Install Joomla 1.0.3 and use mod_rewrite and apache 2.0.x. Enable SEO in Joomla.

Settings in .htaccess:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*) index.php

Hi there, we're experiencing the same problem. Been playing with mod_rewrite at RewriteLogLevel 9 and found nothing. Then I tried this simple test:

(.htaccess file)

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule	^test-html$	test.html [L]
RewriteRule	^test-php$	test.php [L]

While the first rule matches and works well, the second one actually matches properly, too (verified in mod_rewrite log) but the script never gets executed and I get empty document (<html><body></body></html>) as output. No errors in logs whatsoever. It seems like when PHP script as a target of RewriteRule causes the problems. Static content works all well.

Apache/2.0.53@FreeBSD5.4, PHP 4.1.1.

I'm sorry, can't try out PHP5 snapshot ATM.

FreeBSD 5.4, Apache 2.0.55 + mod_rewrite

sample rule : 
RewriteRule ^affiche/([0-9]+)/$ index.php?
op=affiche&origine=$1 [L]

same problem experienced, but I've got php error logs. What 
can be said from those logs is that : 

php 4.4.1 won't be able to include files if the URL goes 
thru the mod_rewrite:

[02-Nov-2005 15:26:02] PHP Warning:  main(): Unable to 
access ./fonctions.php in /www/.../index.php on line 103
[02-Nov-2005 15:26:02] PHP Warning:  main(./fonctions.php): 
failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /
www/.../index.php on line 103
[02-Nov-2005 15:26:02] PHP Warning:  main(): Failed opening 
'./fonctions.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:') in /
www/.../index.php on line 103

php 4.4.1 will sometime include the file (after apache 
restart AND direct request to the "offending" url) but will 
fail with fatal error : 

[02-Nov-2005 14:53:42] PHP Fatal error:  Cannot redeclare 
listeentrees() (previously declared in /www/.../
fonctions.php:28) in /www/.../fonctions.php on line 28
