php 5.2.4-2ubuntu5.7

Assuming a symbolic link refers to a script and both are on a remote file system:

Calling realpath('./') does not produce the same results as 
realpath(dirname(__FILENAME__)) when the script is being referred to by its 
symlink over NFS.

I meant the magic constant __FILE__ (__FILENAME__) was a typo. Is there a 
changelog entry for 5.3 that refers to the issue?
