APC uses wrong cache file if there are two files of the same name but accessed with different include_path settings. See reporoduce code for info.

Reproduce code:
<? $text = "1111111111111111"; ?>

<? $text = "2222222222222222"; ?>

<? include("text.php"); echo $text; ?>

<? ini_set("include_path", "abc:."); include("text.php"); echo $text; ?>

Expected result:
If you access index1.php, it will include text.php from the current directory (right) and APC will cache that text.php; the output will be "111111111111111".

If you access index2.php next, it should include text.php from the "abc" directory but will wrongly use the cached text.php from the current directory instead; the output will be again "111111111111" but should be "22222222222222".

It also works the other way around: if you access index2.php first, text.php from "abc" directory will be cached, and the output for index2.php will be 22222222222222 (right).

If you access index1.php after that, the output will also be "2222222222222222" (wrong) but should be "111111111111111".

It looks to me like stat() is being called (for absolute paths?) before we check include paths, but this causes us to read in the wrong file with the same filename.  It also gives the current directory a higher priority than the include paths.  I've made the following changes, and it corrects my reproduction of this error.  (I had to turn off KeepAlive as well to reproduce consistently due to the sapi stat.)

This should cause the include paths to have a higher priority, unless the path is absolute.  If it's absolute we just use regular stat, and short circuit the apc_stat_paths call.

I believe this could also be related to bug #560:

Please let me know if this is a possible fix, or if I'm just shooting in the dark.  -thx!

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up at the
end of next Sunday (CET) on

In case this was a website problem, the change will show
up on the website in short time.
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PECL better.
