Test #1:
  include_path = .\;..\..\lib;..\includes

Using require(), picks up files in same path, nowhere else.  Without reproducing those lines a dozen times, I'll say that it always acknowledges the first path specified, but doesn't parse the splits and use the other paths.

This worked in 4.03pl1.

confirmed with today's CVS. 
ini_get( 'include_path' ) reports only the first path when paths delimited with semicolon (escaping backslashes or using slashes makes no difference). 
with colon as the delimiter ini_get( 'include_path' ) returns the whole setting, however, it doesn't work.

Oddly enough, as another developer pointed out, semicolons are the comment delimiters in the INI file, which makes them a very poor choice for the split character in paths.

Yet more odd, these paths *did* work in 4.0.x up to 4.0.3pl1.  It wasn't until upgrading to 4.0.4 that it behaved as one would expect.

I'd simply recommend including a comment in the ini-dist (and ini-optimized) that indicated that quotation marks around the path string are required.

Use quotes around the string. Otherwise INI parser thinks ;
is a start of the comment.
