Description:
------------
This code segment runs in a file included from an upper level script.  The same script appears to work correctly when PHP is compiled with the same options on a 32 bit OS.

Apache 2.2 compiled from source

All php compiled from source

Linux kernel 2.6.26.2 compiled from source.  

libc:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1658189 2008-04-22 03:51 libc-2.7.so*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      11 2008-06-17 18:22 libc.so.6 -> libc-2.7.so*

root@server1:/lib# gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 4.2.3

./configure  --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-mysql=/usr/local/my
sql --with-zlib --with-gd --with-jpeg-dir=/usr --with-png-dir=/usr --prefix=/usr
/local/php5 --enable-mbstring

Code:

$osd_root_path2 = realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/../../../') . '/';
$dump=fopen("/var/www/html/chat/dumptest","w");
  fprintf($dump,"%s\n%s\n",dirname(__FILE__),$osd_root_path2);
fclose($dump);

The file output was the same on 5.2.6 through 5.3.Alpha3

Output when safe mode is on:
/var/www/html/chat/inc/cmses
/

Output when safe mode is off:
/var/www/html/chat/inc/cmses
/var/www/html/


Reproduce code:
---------------
$osd_root_path2 = realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/../../../') . '/';
$dump=fopen("/var/www/html/chat/dumptest","w");
  fprintf($dump,"%s\n%s\n",dirname(__FILE__),$osd_root_path2);
fclose($dump);



Expected result:
----------------
Output when safe mode is off:
/var/www/html/chat/inc/cmses
/var/www/html/


Actual result:
--------------
Output when safe mode is on:
/var/www/html/chat/inc/cmses
/

Minor code change produced a correct result.  Appears the issue is related to more than three levels up.  Just so happends that this is also the safe mode chroot directory:

/var/www/html/

<Directory "/var/www/html">
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
    php_admin_flag safe_mode on
#    php_flag assert.warning off
#    php_admin_flag assert.warning off
    php_admin_value safe_mode_exec_dir /var/www/html/
    php_admin_value open_basedir /var/www/html/


$osd_root_path2 = realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/../../') . '/';
$dump=fopen("/var/www/html/chat/dumptest","w");
  fprintf($dump,"%s\n%s\n",dirname(__FILE__),$osd_root_path2);
fclose($dump);

/var/www/html/chat/inc/cmses
/var/www/html/chat/
