I'm opening up a series of files with fopen, and reading them into an array using fgets.  After reading the first couple files in succesfully, fopen falsly reports that further files do not exist.

Each of the failures echoes the $filename, if I take that URL and pull it up in a web browser, it retrieves the file.

This is all in a loop that generates the filename variables.

for (....... {

  $filename = "http://host.domain.com/" . $year . "/" . $months $month] . "/" . $day . "/" . "$query[$ws]" . ".txt";
  $fd = @fopen($filename,"r"); 
  if (!$fd) { 
    print "Unable to open file: $filename" . "<br>";
    $ws++;
    continue;
  }
  while (!feof($fd)) {
    $data[] = fgets($fd, 4096);
  }
  fclose ($fd);


....... } 

So what I end up with is proper information for the first file or two, the rest of the files fail regaurdless of whether they exist or not.

I highly doubt this is truly a PHP bug, if you can find a
test case that can always be reproduced, please open a new
bug report.

After upgrading to php 4, this problem disapeared.  But it is still reproducable on any of my servers still running 3.
