A PHP3-script crashes reproducable when it is target of a form-submit operation with a specific encoding (multipart/form-data)
Sample script:

        <title>PHP Post test</title>

echo "submit:$testen:<br>\n";
        echo "$tester<br>\n";

<form method="post" action="posttest.php3" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="text" size="10" name="tester" value='<? echo $tester; ?>'>
<input type="submit" value="jetzt" name="testen">

Any other type of encoding works fine.

PHP3 is RPM-built from the latest RedHat sources (php-3.0.17-1.6.2.src.rpm) with two modifications:

* added --with-mysql to the configure call
* added --enable-versioning to the configure call (crash happens with and without PHP4 running parallel)

configure call as reported by phpinfo():
./configure '--prefix=/usr' '--with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs' '--with-config-file-path=/etc/httpd' '--enable-safe-mode'
'--with-exec-dir=/usr/bin' '--with-system-regex' '--disable-debug' '--with-zlib' '--with-gdbm' '--with-db2'
'--enable-debugger' '--enable-magic-quotes' '--enable-track-vars' '--enable-sysvsem' '--enable-sysvshm'
'--enable-track-vars' '--enable-versioning' '--with-mysql' '--with-xml' '--with-ftp'

gdb trace follows.

We are sorry, but can not support PHP 3 related problems anymore.
Momentum is gathering for PHP 5, and we think supporting PHP 3 will
lead to a waste of resources which we want to put into getting PHP 5
ready. Ofcourse PHP 4 will will continue to be supported for the
forseeable future.

file upload stuff was rewritten for php 4.2
