Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a short but complete example script to be able to reproduce
this bug ourselves. 

A proper reproducing script starts with <?php and ends with ?>,
is max. 10-20 lines long and does not require any external 
resources such as databases, etc. If the script requires a 
database to demonstrate the issue, please make sure it creates 
all necessary tables, stored procedures etc.

Please avoid embedding huge scripts into the report.

Works for me.

var_dump(readfile("http://example.com/filename.txt"));

Warning: readfile(http://example.com/filename.txt): failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found
 in - on line 3
bool(false)

Oh, and don't submit bug reports with code that uses error suppression.
