By authenticating with the help of $PHP_AUTH_USER / $PHP_AUTH_PW, PHP has problems to set these variables when they include German Umlauts (???????). 

Here a list with correct and incorrect values:

$PHP_AUTH_USER:       result:

Testet with Apache 1.3.3 and PHP 3.0.5 on Linux and SUN Solaris. 
My do-conf line: 
./configure --with-apache=/usr/local/src/comapache/apache_1.3.3 --with-gd=/usr/local --with-mysql --with-config-file-path

This strange behaviour is discussed in the German PHP Mailing List (archive on, but until now we haven't found a solution.

This looks like a Netscape problem to me.  At least, I was able to reproduce the problem with Netscape, but with IE5 it worked perfectly.  Can you verify that everything is fine with IE for you?

Ok, I am sure this is not a PHP bug.  Closing it.
