<?
    $db = dbmopen('req.db', "n");
    $in = "1234567890";
    dbminsert($db, "ID", $in);
    $out = dbmfetch($db, "ID");
    dbmclose($db);
    echo "in  -$in-\n";
    echo "out -$out-\n";
?>

am using the distribution "Win32 Binaries packaged as zip" from
http://www.php3.org/downloads.php
filename : php-4.0.3pl1-Win32.zip

save code as say db.php3
run in dos window to exclude interference from webserver

d:\tmp>\php\php.exe db.php3
X-Powered-By: PHP/4.0.3pl1
Content-type: text/html

in  -1234567890-
out -234567890-

As you can see the first char is dropped. For anything up to 9 chars everythings OK. More than 9, first char is dropped. Tried using all alhpa strings, same behaviour. 
Looked at req.db flat file database, everything looks ok there.

The db extension is deprecated. 
Use dba extension instead.
