Description:
------------
When I try to write content of xml file using XMLWriter, it works fine _only_ if xml file is in the same directory as php script. When path contains slash or backslash, it is unable to open file.
My code works on 5.2.9 but fails when running on 5.3.0 (I use WampServer).

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php
$x = new XMLWriter();
$x->openURI('data/file.xml');
$x->startDocument('1.0', 'UTF-8');
$x->writeElement('root');
$x->endDocument();
print '<plaintext>'.file_get_contents('data/file.xml');
?>

Expected result:
----------------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <root/> 

Actual result:
--------------
Warning: XMLWriter::openUri() [xmlwriter.openuri]: Unable to resolve file path in C:\localhost\www\xml.php on line 3

Warning: XMLWriter::startDocument() [xmlwriter.startdocument]: Invalid or unitialized XMLWriter object in C:\localhost\www\xml.php on line 4

Warning: XMLWriter::writeElement() [xmlwriter.writeelement]: Invalid or unitialized XMLWriter object in C:\localhost\www\xml.php on line 5

Warning: XMLWriter::endDocument() [xmlwriter.enddocument]: Invalid or unitialized XMLWriter object in C:\localhost\www\xml.php on line 6

Since when is 'data/file.xml' a valid URI? Try with proper URI instead.

PHP Version: 5.3.1
OS Version: XP SP3 32bit

$xml->openURI('file.xml'); -> ok!
$xml->openURI('../file.xml'); -> ok!
$xml->openURI('xml/file.xml'); -> DON'T WORK!
$xml->openURI('../xml/file.xml'); -> DON'T WORK!

Don't work when you tries to access to a directory, why?

Re-opening due to
<http://php.net/manual/en/function.xmlwriter-open-uri.php#119868>.

However, I can't reproduce this issue. Can anybody else?
