i have code that runs via the command line... the php include path is set to 

that code does an
for a file that is in the same directory.  that file is included correctly.

then in "file.php" i have
for another file in the same directory... but there is also a file at 

using a backtrace log i see that the /some/dir/another_file.php is being included 
instead of the file in the current directory.

i changed the include("another_file.php"); to be include("./another_file.php");, 
and now everything works.

this is a pretty obvious bug.

I can't reproduce this, but bear in mind that . doesn't mean "the directory of the file PHP is currently executing", but rather "the current working directory of the process". Which directory are you invoking PHP in, and what does echo getcwd(); indicate your current working directory is before your include? Is it /some/dir or the directory file.php is in?

If that all seems right, I suspect we'll need a self contained reproduce script from you.
