[php-maint] Bug#440907: php5: file_exists gives fails warnings with open_basedir enabled

Package: php5
Version: 5.2.3-1+b1
Severity: normal

If you use file_exists() and open_basedir(), you'll get a warning when the file doesn't exist.
Theses warnings are annoying and are breaking websites which are using header(). Also, if 
you're not aware of this issue, you end up looking for a non-existant misconfiguration.

A bug upstream has been filed for this issue and has been fixed. The patch works for me.


Please consider applying the patch.
