Package: php5-cgi
Version: 5.3.3-7
Severity: normal

When using php5-cgi with lighttpd via fastcgi $_SERVER["PATH_INFO"] is empty, even with the suggested adjustments on lighttpd- and php-side as mentioned in http://redmine.lighttpd.net/wiki/lighttpd/Docs:ModFastCGI#FastCGI-and-Programming-Languages.

My php.ini contains:

My lighttpd.conf contains:
fastcgi.server = ( ".php" => ((                                                                                                                              
                     "bin-path" => "/usr/bin/php5-cgi",                                                                                                      
                     "socket" => "/tmp/php.socket",                                                                                                          
                     "max-procs" => 2,                                                                                                                       
                     "bin-environment" => (                                                                                                                  
                       "PHP_FCGI_CHILDREN" => "16",                                                                                                          
                       "PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS" => "10000" 
                     "bin-copy-environment" => (
                       "PATH", "SHELL", "USER" 
                     "broken-scriptfilename" => "enable" 

Changing the values of cgi.fix_pathinfo or broken-scriptfilename has no effect. I was able to reproduce this problem on a squeeze and on a sid machine.
