From phpinfo for the file:
_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"]	//htdocserv/htdocsns/
_SERVER["SCRIPT_FILENAME"]	//htdocserv/htdocsns/user/hernst/head/xml/iwat/tools/version.php

In processmonitor I only see one access try to
and not to

I have one .user.ini file in
C:\>dir \\htdocserv\htdocsns\user\hernst\head\xml\*.ini
 Volume in drive \\htdocserv\htdocsns is htdocsns
 Volume Serial Number is AF3D-2838
 Directory of \\htdocserv\htdocsns\user\hernst\head\xml
16.03.2011  11:40                19 .user.ini
               1 File(s)             19 bytes

Seems the alogrith does not work properly with the network shares on windows and trying to macht the Document-Root to the current file

Any reason why you don't mount it instead?

However it should work anyway, but can you try by mounting this path as a folder 
or drive please?

Can't use it as drive because apache does not start then:
DocumentRoot z:/
DocumentRoot z:
DocumentRoot "z:/"
leads to a Syntax error on line 6 of C:/Program Files/Zend/Apache2/conf/default-with-letter.conf

DocumentRoot "//htdocserv/htdocsns"
This might happen for apache as Z: is not available in that context. Running apache as Service with NT AUTHORITY\NetworkService Account.

That's rather weird, it works just fine here. But that's hardly a php problem (the 
conf error).

What if you use a folder? Mounting the share as c:\apache\htdocs for example?

Sorry, can't get the network share to map to a sirectory. The typical thing with junction and mklink commands does not seem to work on Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2. Or is there any other command to map the share to a directory in Windows Server 2003 R2?
 [2011-03-16 15:45 UTC]
Ah right, junctions are only for local data, sorry.

However the drive letter issue is weird, sounds like a problem in the zend 
server's apache, please report the issue to them.

I will take a look at the initial problem as soon as possible.

Is this still an issue with any of the actively supported PHP

Currently that feature is no longer required, so didn't check it again if it works with a most recent php version
