Even with open_basedir . configured in php.ini, the following bypasses it with concerning ease:

	echo `cat /etc/passwd`;

The fact that open_basedir is in force is obvious when we try fopen ("/etc/passwd", "r"), etc - ie, the expected open_basedir error pops up.

Surely this is not a bug?  If so, is there a way to disable backticks?

I'll wait for some kind of response before I send this to the usual support mailing lists.
