Submit a multipart form with a text and a file inputs to a php script with, just, the phpinfo(); call...
  <form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="index.php?action=Test">
    Upload:&nbsp;<input name="userfile" type="file" size="40"><br>
    Var:&nbsp;<input name="uservar" type="text" size="40"><br>
    <input type="submit" name="upload" value="?Enviar!">
    <input type="hidden" name="Do" value="upload">
#Here the script

Php 4.0 pl1 for win32, default installation. Only auto_prepend_file pointing to phplib's "prepend.php".

It happens that sometimes phpinfo reflects the fact that i'm submitting data (HTTP_POST_VARS and HTTP_POST_FILES filled) and sometimes doesn't. HTTP_GET_VARS always show the "action=test" sent by the form action.
More Info: 
- php.ini has the correct values (file_uploads=On; upload_max_filesize = 2M) cause i've never tried and upload bigger then 300k. 
- I'm prepending a modified version of the standard prepend.php from PHPLIB, so i'm sending the session id trough cookies or, sometimes url rewriting. In both cases phpinfo reflects that fact. 
- I've changed the environment from NT4.0 SP6a to Win2000 Sever SP1. From IBM HTTP Server (based on Apache 1.3.12) to Apache 1.3.19, and to IIS4.0 and IIS5.0 and from PHP 4.02 to PHP4.04 PL1 with or without Zend Optimizer, as ISAPI filter or as CGI. But i always get the same: Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't.

This script is totally useless, why would you want to submit
a multipart/encoded form to a page that does nothing with it.
